An Anniversary Poem

by Reilley
(Dedham, MA)

At first, we were serious
With the solemnity
Of beginnings
All must be done right!

Eyes closed
I memorize the Braille
Passages of your body.

The sound of your silence
Drowns out the world.
Beneath the weight
Of my words,
I crumble.

Then, we were amorous.
Having learned the route
We looked for shortcuts.

Press me like a flower
Between the pages
Of your arms,
Let my tongue learn
The salty taste of you.

Find a ripple
Outward from this joy.
Remember this moment
Carved into our past?

Now we are grown,
Taking the time
To laugh together
As much as we love.

This is what I want.
