Morning After (In the Garden of Eden)

Together, yet still unfamiliar,
prolonging their finery,
and the fragile coupling of the night before,
they weave through Sunday morning streets
in search of common ground. And breakfast.

Daylight, shadows and sunshine,
opens their eyes
illuminates their bodies
and fingers, entwined and tipped
with strangeness in the knowledge
that underneath it all
they are still naked.
