Couch, Cuddling

…and we spent the entire morning
cuddling on a friend’s couch,
and it was beautiful
in the haywire silent
electricity of
an everyone’s-passed-out morning.
People scattered on the dark floor
untouched by morning sun,
we sat smiling and gently teasing
each other’s bodies
in a halo of dusty light.

Oh,
and happy new year.

Well,
since it was with you,
anyway.
