Black August Dreams

Once on a dark august night 
you’ll rise brightly to the occasion
you’ll come to me with your magic
magic black & tender & beautiful
as your skin, your smile, your eyes-
not everyone will get to see it, &
i surely don’t want to miss it
jealous of anyone with front row access
'cause i want this special moment all to myself
but if i promise to share you generously
will you allow me to move gently into your splendor?
you only appear once in a blue moon
& in the deep slumber of my black august dreams

i will remember you when I wake
