air and earth and water
sunset on the beach
Cancun, you said --
next year.
Sweet drinks and warm sand,
sun on the water, the skin
of your legs tan;
you on one side of me
and him on the other.
Five days, maybe more,
not just stolen moments --
five nights, maybe more,
just our family --
five nights could be eternity.
