From the book:

Porch Swing

he knew they were lovers officially

when they shared ice tea

from the same Mason jar

while slowly moving on the porch swing

gazing at the stars

like the stars were red tailed hawks

and although the pastures were familiar

somehow they seemed different

now he put his finger as to why

shadows cooled the air

and dampened her into a shiver

so naturally

and nonchalantly

he slopped his arm around her shoulder

pleased he’d gotten this far

this close

sneaking like a red fox

and in an instant she snuggled in

roots settling in

after transplanting

it was then

his belief was confirmed

she wanted him too

the world slipped into his arms

all their concerns floated away

then sweeping laughter

entered their hearts
