Morning Rain

I should be dressed, I know,
but the weather is warm
and the first drops
were lost upon my skin.

The rest I invited in:
wanton fingers
ran sweetly
down my back.

Where have I been?

As far as you imagine:
to a place where
daylight moans
in autumn�s rusted fields.

Now I�m home again,
a ghost beside you at the window,
glad so much depends on what we feel.
