snow down reggae

settle in
long dark nights
of winter are
here to wrap
around you
like
the blue crochet
shawl
with knotted fringe,
but never
enough.

something in
the layers
in the burrowing for
warmth
sealing your body
from the wind, snow,
although
it gets hot
under down,
down under

Her bed
shifts and sways
with sun and sweet breezes
errupting into
lush tropics.

there's a party
under her covers
there's marguritas
down under

reggae bass
like kind thunder
rhythm guitar
rocks her sea
the ceiling
watches her
groove

Lift the quilt
lay your guilt down
lay down with her
reggae man.
