Our First Place

Our
first place
just
woke
up
to
discussions
of
couch
placements,
door
handles,
and
love-making.
We’re
stepping
on
two feet
and
making
it
all up
as
we go
along;
because
it’s
a morning
where
I
get to
gaze
into
sleepy
eyes,
and
listen
to half-fading
speech,
and
kiss onto
pressed
lips;
like
jazz music
when
you
really need
it
too
simmer
those warm
days.
If
you
ain’t learned
anything
from
this
poet,
know
that
our first
place
didn’t
start
with a keyhole,
but
a
moment
where
our
love painted
the
sky
the colors
we
wanted.

M.C. Davis
