Escalation by Michelle Elvy

1: You…
2: …and me.
3: You want to…?
4: Cool night, hot hope.
5: Pour me another, keep talking.
6: 4am. Still here. Electric fingertips touch.
7: Your voice makes music between the sheets.
8: Dawn dapples your shoulder; I kiss the light.
9: I’ll show you yours if you show me mine.
10: Don’t fall to sleep. Tell me another story. 1001? Yes.
