Not Alone

A black stone floats in the two lovers’ lips
I am not at all alone today
the grass leaning against a stone
a grackle wanders among tobacco colored leaves
the sound of a river pulling boats
In the distance
someone is unbuckling a grey head
but the lovers are persuing
the mountain in the fingertips
