"New Ribbons"

"New Ribbons"
written in the dark while up late far away by jake kilroy.

New ribbons, new skylines,
new seasons, new tanlines,
knew everything before I had mind.

And even if the weather is crisp
and you're sleepy from an afternoon fix,
there waits a wild pulse
between a girl and her ghosts,
as her boy lets dreams drift
and drinks his sly kiss,
never whispering new words,
only moving to hear purrs,
naked and humming his lessons learned,
while showering after a midnight burn.

There remains an exhaustion that never lets you go to sleep.
