Writ into Bone and Mouth

his nakedness near the wide window
all honesty and long relief
this is the first the world stretches
for him
it trembles pulled taught and
free on its back,
just as she'd been minutes ago
this is summer afternoon
shed skins on the floor
toast to new tastes
and having no answer for 'why would we wait for this'
understanding writ into bone and mouth
in this, the After, the sun finishes
on his opened chest what her mouth started there
