Vacation Poems


My skin rises to my defense.
My ears close and turn inward.
Heat rolls off my body in waves.
Was this poem born of wasp stings? 
Or was this reaction
A poem's demand for life?

And Yet

i am forty one and married
you are a year older 
a gap that seemed significant 
when we were young
you too are married
both happily so, i might add
and yet
some mornings i awaken
having dreamed of you

Nothing like a New Zealand vampire mockumentary.
