You fell into bed, still in your clothes;
kicking your shoes off half without thinking,
but leaving all your jewelry on.
Sometime before dawn
you must have wriggled out of your dress;
you awaken with one hand dangling over the mattress,
fingers still hooked around an errant bra strap.
He brings you coffee and a ripe peach.
Bare legs twine lazily against a field of rumpled cotton;
skin smelling of sleep,
of last night's club and taxi and brandy,
of cigarettes smoked,
of love well-requited.
