"Late" - Joseph Wallace



Late
sunset
latte drifting
in the
sunset colors
orange pink
sky blue
coffee
brown
latte drifting
in flared nostrils

I should like
to be carried
with the scent
across a cheek

Yellow
Morning
coffee brown
in the
morning glory
red orange
glorious morning
green
mug
coffee brown
and birds sing

I should like
to be carried
with great gifts
through the lips

Latte
late
yellow teeth
in the
middle night
purple black
moon white
coffee
brown
yellow teeth
and loving eyes

I should like
to be carried
from the smile
to loving ears

Coffee
noon
late rushing
in the
beating sun
white blue
leaf green
coffee
brown
late rushing
“let’s get coffee”

I should like
to be carried
on birds’ wings
catching your eyes

Late
sunset
latte drifting
in the
sunset colors
orange pink
sky blue
coffee
brown
latte drifting
drifting to sleep

I should like
to be carried
off to sleep
warm and cozy

cozy and warm
on birds’ wings
with great gifts

into loving arms
with a scent
like I should
