First Breakfast

The best love
is had between
the sheets awry
at communion
of late morning—
the clock and cell
phones set to off
while the juice comes
with toast, croissants,
or rice toppings.

The coffee that's post-
post-coital, the filtered
cigarette of barely deep
appreciation, the easy
conversation—all spell
finer worship than
her south, your north.
Finer even than the caresses
now and forever. Or all those
at the eve of this sharing.
