    stay all morning
    by romus simpson

    stay all morning
    in the first light fretting
    miles it's eye open & clear
    raises the day
    the obligation to come &
    juxtapose the starling blue
    & scatter the starling to the waking world

    but stay past that incipient light
    beyond the unhinging morning
    after the concrete settles
    long past instinct after the
    clocks have stopped screaming
    in the clear hour past transit
    stay

    in the small cool fire hush
    secret & loved in my arms
    move back against me
    find your place in shadow
    on my easy earth

    for hours changing positions
    like the clockhand change finds a new number
    & chimes in joy the hour come like birth
    on the wall loving in strict language
    or the morning doorway rotates its view
    we'll find each other each minute
    shifting carelessly far away from the planet

    & your breasts
    casual in their gait
    u offer them
    u walk with them
    introduce them….
    lay with me naked singing
    until i want you

    & your eyes
    what can be said?
    u belong to me here
    are requisite as breath
    my marrow churns
    sun burns bright in the floating window

    big strong brotha like me says yes
    to everything the morning suggests

    sistuh furiously
    if u can lean
    if u possibly can
    sistuh sistuh sistuh
    stay

    but the man things fall away
    this poem not from my chest
    but is from the smallness in my belly
    but is from the longing in my honest hands

    no war today

    & the torrent of morning
    disheveled in the cool bed
    your errant hand breathing in bed
    an elipse of air & rhythm
    your beautiful damp thumb
    a small brown bird
    a snow of sheets around you
    your crazy hair & its residue night
    beautiful citizen…..
