One a.m., the two of us holding hands, naked
in bed, in a second-floor room in Galway.
The tea-colored light from a streetlamp
seeping through the accordion blinds, tattooing the walls,
& from the open window—the sounds of passers-by,
traffic on the rain-soaked pavement, & a gull’s insistent,
almost jubilant cry.
