"what the lovers wanted"

"what the lovers wanted"
while looking out a window by jake kilroy.

they draped themselves over each other in bed,
with the afternoon breeze
lulling them in and out,
sweetly and richly,
watching the palm trees sway
from his bedroom window.
in between giggles,
she told him how she wanted
sunsets, roses, ballets,
picnics, museums, showers,
operas, galleries, beaches,
fires, porches, concerts,
parks, cafes, mountains,
tents, pools, observatories,
movies, songs and getaways.
he coughed up a grin.
all he wanted was a season of sundresses
and cigarettes that wouldn't kill him,
but he had all the time in the world.
