Marshmallows and Midnight


that night in the country
when we celebrated our intelligence
with lighter fluid and dry wood
 
the smoke burned my eyes but
I laughed through the flying
embers
 
you told me the breeze felt
like rain and I offered my
face to the night sky,
 
I said
"the rain feels like rain"
 
you cocked your head to
the side, like a curious puppy
and agreed with me through
the gleam in your eyes
 
later that night,you breathed
me in and whispered
"you smell like marshmallows and midnight"
 
I knew with morning's clarity, it
would just be burnt kindling.
