Summer Evening
by Middlepoet


Cuddled

in humidity

the romantic aroma

of north Jersey



Man

Woman

Trinity

knowing we should

use the condom

praying we don’t pull apart



Surreal imagery

Conquered by the ageless

woman of strength

Eva Peron

Frida Kahlo

African rivers of divinity



What in the hunter caused surrender?



Addicted

the opiate exists in dark alley ways

of love

underground

repressed

to undress

her insecurity
























Elegance


Her

legs

caused

me

to

wander.

They

weren’t

nice,

just

very

smooth,

soft,

like

hope.summer
