Amelia: one moment in the street, just now.

by Andrew S Adams

her hair casts the shadow
across her eyes, and
in the streetlight orange shade of night
the shelter that she provides
is a blanket from a city covered in
a perpetual night time chill

and as i see her drive into the
distance with the tail light red reminding me
of her recent presence
i wander back to the house
and the artificial warmth
held within,
waiting endlessly
for her breath on my neck
once again.
