A Night of Marriage

Succor, feels now false but feelings can be
like when it sounds like rain but
it’s the heater – we went to bed again
dry as spring without aspiration,
too hot to hold, too cold for kissing
TV off but echoing and night
fell upon us, like a blanket, like an overpass
and we made it to morning unadorned
and all our lapses now are numbered,
counted on, redeemed like coupons
and here we are
and here
we stay
a spring and a weathered
whisper of promise, of succor
that you can that you can’t
believe as night
fades, corrodes to
light and the promise
of easy pleasure.
