Ever Since

For years ever since the gold cloth
in the sand, and our loving
there, cradled in the high dunes,
blue blue air above
the breaking sea, below
the wheeling squealing gulls,
flashes of sunlight gold on blue,
nestled down warm sand around
your ass, my hands holding it
as we rocked into a new life
we never thought could come for us,
I’ve loved you madly.
