Summer's end

At summer's end
you are a miracle
sleeping on my shoulder
we are dying and dancing
in the soft light
of autumn

an ocean of sea and salt
I lick the salt
from your chest
we have dissolved
our heavy limbs
climbing like 

we can be anything
the roar of the sea
the calm dream 
of death

I am flooded 
and complete
at the same time
