Palm Springs

 we rode bikes            laughing

   the sun         pedals woof          wild

index fingers             pointed mountaintops
    hiking         heat       in flip  -  flops

    canopy games            spilled blue      ink
blueing                       the vodka pool 

   on    your    knees     you    told     me 
it was too early            
		  you like    to be    teased

That was                          
				 all we had.
