outside a gated region sumptuous with spiders in glimmering sun
somewhere east of hyacinth west of buzzing bees.
A pair of hummingbirds flirt on ancient power lines long dead
diving in for a quick fuck before nesting begins filling skies
ignoring crow caws cracking afternoon smell of garbage.
My throat opens in imaginary swallowing pose thinking of her
How she took me in caught me engulfed me consumed my yum
Eyes open blinking against the light of sun from behind my shoulder.
