Before You Left

Lemons grew as flowers
on the balcony
to humble trees to shake
hair glistened that was gold
in the terry cloth towel
forest green bath mat
footprints scaled the walls
hands in garlic slices
the fur consumed cat
cries oblivion rapture hello
the ceiling felt too low
the table was wood
that is now metal
I heard the BQE
it was the ocean late
at night we were
dreaming this panging
head on an orange
pillow getting dirtier
time passing soon years
and fog taking it away
from memory tricks
laps milk slips away
goodbye goodbye.
