at the beach

there must have been a million stars
sprinkled across the sky
the night we lay on damp sand
making slow sweet love in the moonlight

no
surely that’s exaggeration
but it seemed as though everything
that could twinkle was peeking down at us

i remember the not-unwelcome scrape
of your beard
a lover’s sandpaper smoothing my skin
and the taste of you

dark and rich and as salty as the sea
that sang its endless melody
to its benevolent overseer
the smiling silver moon

and how you laughed
when i softly bit your lip
then stopped as i slowly
slid my mouth an audacious explorer

down down down
stopping only when i reached
those measureless unlit depths
you kept hidden from the world

and how we cried out triumphant
as we merged seamless
until there was no telling where
either of us began or ended

all this
a familiar tide from another life washes back
as i gaze up at another sky
wondering which of those million stars is you
