Tonight's Poet Corner: Six Years Later

Six Years Later
by Belinda Roddie

plain black socks
on the floor near our bed
the shape of your body
still lingering against
the anatomy of the mattress

before entering our lair
we still tasted salty hamachi
and albacore and salmon
holding hands at a park
filled with too many people
playing baseball and soccer
in the lukewarm May evening

chocolate chip cookies
and beer after dinner
the flames have dissipated
but six years later
we still feel the heat
we still cherish the heat
we still sustain the heat
