her passing touch
how do I
weigh a thirty-year love
against a moment's pleasure?

  the light
on her back
every curve defined –
sunset falls
across the ranges

    falling snow
spinning in the wind
just as you said
I love you
the streetlights came on

not an inch
of quilted night between us…
matte black ducati
I'm riding pillion
on the back roads of your dreams

  cloudless morning
the frigid air swallows plumes
of white chimney smoke
like children at a carnival
with swirls of cotton candy
