To The Girls

Forgive me.  
I stole a glance up your shirt  
While helping you manage the ladder.  

I can still see the heart  
You inscribed upon my hand †
That day, I hadnít any clue.  
Now I know, I should have known  
I would be great friends with you.  

With a most ecstatic hug, †
I soaked in your laugh.  
Your smile, my photograph, your sculpture,  
Someone would say  
They mirrored one another.  

Coming in from the beach,  
Sunburned in the dark,  
I bend down and wash your feet,  
We are sandy. Giddy. Restless.  
The dirt of the day washes out to the street.
