Late evening sunshine

reflects on the glass tray;


the breeze, blowing off the beach

brings flowers through the window;


tidied hands leave the pitcher

at the shelf beside the bed;


alcohol on the rise

brings dinner visions;


how many meals shared

by barebacks under the clouded ceiling;


the immaculate white sheets

are the only virgin here.
