poetry

one night in los feliz

we walked for hours
under faded city
stars
ran up into those hills
and back again

your body language
talked to me
told me you
were nervous
your hands
betrayed your
secrets

you finally kissed me
those hands all over my
face like
I like

and then you stopped
you looked at me hard
and long
and sad
you told me about a girl
down in Austin

I had to drive you home
after that
to your sublet in
Koreatown

today
I pray
for rain
