You’ve come around again,

Drunk, flowers on your breath,

Smiling, blossoms in your teeth,

With that fresh rain perfume

You love so much.



Where were you

All those nights

When I held snowstorm soirees

For deep freeze dilettantes?

At your best, you could have dazzled them all.



I don’t care

for your quick sunshine kisses

Or pastel umbrellas;

Just tell me that this time

You’ll stay.
