Below the diamond shaped clouds
of a Tug Hill sunset, lying next to his
dog, with soft fingers asleep inside
two heart shaped patches, where
the moon barely creeps in and his
sweet olive black eyes said goodnight
once or twice already. You probably
kissed my forehead and looked at me
with that look you will never see yourself.
