Into the Sun

The path to your house
Well worn
Tamped down
By rabbit and wolf
Compels the feet
Step lightly

The journey
Stretched long
Like the tanning
Of the rattler
Bites relentlessly
That beautiful poison
Of anticipation

It’s that moment
When eyes meet
The relief
When held tight
To die wonderfully
Of days past
