postural pastoral

By K Weber

Copyright ©2024

this pressure feels purplish

and all i did was stand

from sitting after sleeping

like a bag of sand

on your nubby couch. i spy 

swimmers from your bay

window. across busy 

lanes of traffic i make

eye contact with life-

guards as you breathe

into my body, save

me from behind. we could 

take this outside and i’d grab 

handfuls of leaves and needles

from those thick, private

bushes. only rabbits 

and squirrels hear us

in effortless euphoria: the hum 

and hump fast or soft

as cottontail. even the neighbors

in swimsuit, trunk, and towel

are unaware of our sounds

as automobiles pant so fast

with quickening pulse 

down your frantic road.
