Like New

20140318-101601.jpg

Even though you have touched my body

again and again,

I am still like new today,

rising in the dawn of this morning

to breathe with desire

for your hands,

as though it were

the first time.

 

I am new

like America was,

inhabited for thousands of years,

and yet still waiting

in dappled sunlight,

coffers brimming with gold and chocolate,

to be discovered.
