Honeymoon (Summer)

Joel Armstrong

With his tongue inside my china cheek,

He unlocked my stomach, sent chills through my spine

I exhaled

The breath carried away dandelion seeds

And pulled out a brooch

It refracted the sunlight

Casting shadows across his face

 

We laughed

And watched the brooch relax, bud

Into a hyacinth

It twisted, then dissolved
