Because…

Because he said he loved me

I blushed

I smiled and loved him.

Because he said he’d kiss me

Under the stars…the rain

I kissed him.

Because his words, their rhythm

Sweet music, soul food,

I sang with him.

When his strong hands they beat

A tattoo on my backside

I smiled.

Frenzied limbs, moving, swaying

Buckling under strong hands

Beating a tattoo

For a dirge.
