some sort of intimate

we can roll naked together
i can do that with most anyone
you could too

but threatening to pick my nose,
and taking the sleep from my eye,
late in the morning,

after we’ve rolled from the bed
after strolling on my old stone street
while we are smiling at each other

sharing a park bench, throwing
the stick for the dog, who is smiling too
that’s some sort of intimate
