Breeze left of us we stroll

the rock road over the cliff

smile at the seawe’ve just left

where we swam clothing-less

and kissed the salt water from our lips.

Your fingers find me

we close hands

your gold ring between

the crook of my 2nd and 3rd fingers;

a ring that bethothes you to another.

Now with me in a cliff hollow

we kiss again, nibble salty tastes

from each other, nudge the flesh

of each other free.
