OR….

wear your sexy socks
nothing else
up to the knees
maybe slightly past –

perhaps a string waistline
below the string
waist
line

or

give me you

warm in a terry cloth robe
i’ll bring you a mug of tea
relax on the cushions
raise a fire
and sit back in unison

give me

us

together
growing old
youthful in world adventure
leave the camera behind
private stories discussed when we
come back home

you

in your terry cloth

me

bringing over 2 mugs
2 pair of socks
worn
between our warmed ideas
in the winter’d home
