Recently you told me of your premonition, that
prior to our meeting, you dreamt of a person
with which you could find deep contentment.

You told me this one evening while we drove back home from the coast.

The sun was setting in our eyes
and most noticeably
on your lips -
your warm sunset lips
i crave to hold
between my own.

And I have no doubt, any longer, that
I am
a premonition.
