the sting of something cheap
swiftly followed by the bittersweet
acidic kiss of a sugared lime:

He says to me, he says it again and again—I'm not leaving you, I'm making a path for you to follow—He says it on a tongue like syrup sticking to the zest of his lips, another dry-mouthed confession leaving sweet thick saliva on the corners of his mouth. His face is etched with the shadows of a late summer afternoon, who molasses-crawl with passing clouds and place their sleepy passion onto him—

heavy-lidded lethargy
pockmarked by staccato letters;
siempre pasas por mi mente,

Hermanito
—He trips over his consonants and slurs his vowels into one indecipherable sound—He touches the shoreline of my collar where sweat has pooled in the sweltering room, where the windows and shades slant shaking honey sunlight—and I take another shot. His hand is roughwarm like the lime I squeeze and set aside,

like sand on white beaches
he will miss or won't remember;
the crack of plastic and

A third bottle, the simple pleasure of his company—his thick thumb daubing sweat while his fingers flitter and grip in the coarse dark hairs at the nape of my neck. His skin was callused abrasive, rubbing me red until I am on his shoulder, breathing his shirt and liquor-acrid, sugar stuck to my chin and the cotton fibers of his sleeve.

siempre pasas por mi mente;
swiftly followed by the bittersweet
acidic kiss of a sugared lime.
