under the painting of strawberry pink moon, you

 

write me 

bass drum robust lyrics

heart pounding swaying beat

moving limbs to salsa  


then a slow saxophone mood

scooping blues & easy guitar riffs

spooning us to drowsiness, a spell  


we add running-out-of-time kisses,

shiver of throbbing sun

in this cozy windowless room
