Birthday Girl

(a day late and a dollar short)

today is her birthday
along the side of a hill

stars like fingers
in the winter’s night

moon wings
just below her beautiful chin

god I loved her
so much

my fiery heart
twisting in a furrow

the love poetry I wrote
dry now

erotic dust
kicked up by her breathing

dropping like flies
