that sunday in the park

Updated: May 1, 2023

By RC deWinter

when the light was the violent gold of a late autumn sunset and the park finally deserted your face was a map of violent desire mirrored in the stillness of the lake

i kept my eyes on your reflection as i reached for you one hand holding both of yours to the ground the other unzipping your jeans

and grasping everything you ever wanted throbbing in that stiff column of flesh

where you kept all you never said all you ever did

my palm burned with a heat that rivaled the dying sun and burying my face in the feral perfume of your forest tasted paradise
