The Summer We Never Had

In the summer we never had
there is time,
for endless evening
of coffee and poetry
amid the spark of fireflies
in the city heat.

As voices from late night
gatherings on porches
drift in open windows,
I no longer pretend
you are in my room
just to study.

We are no longer pending
on outside approval,
only the potential
we elevate
in each other.

In the summer we never had,
I don’t have to be
anything more than I am
and it doesn’t matter
that my hair finds its way
into dreadlocks.

There is red wine and passion,
daisies that last the night –
my single bed is luxurious enough
and I never have to get over you.

I taste forever
how it would have been
and never let you go.
