The Third One (Day 543)


The third one  a surprise
it was those eyes  dark 
enough to drown the moon
brown as midnight violets 
we were heat lightning
quick  forbidden  captive
waves and arms like love  
whispery and graceful  
this one knew how to take 
a thing and break it like
a brittle stick  just let it fall 
around him  ground
littered with shiny trinkets 
that once caught his eye
maybe that’s unfair  he said 
he didn’t know  there: 
a bad idea from the start   
ablaze with August heat  
one quickly learns that 
some hearts need doors  
even  especially  secret 
sinning  starlight-swimming  
blueberry-pie-sweet  this 
time few regrets   see how you 
get back what you dish out?
