  • Mark how the months slip away
    fully-leaved the trees are tailored
    your perennials in splendid array
    our lips were forming kisses
    every time we said May

    May was a brief kiss
    primavera caress
    fresh on the pursed lips
    made mouthing June
    or the summer
    in the pucker of July
