Magenta Mood

I feel magenta today, my angel whispers
her palm carefully pressed to my back in an
unconscious guard against desertion

We make love to Billy Joel, Melissa Etheridge and
pulsant rhythms audible only to us
and the upstairs neighbor

She sleeps without showering
insisting to smell me on her skin
until moonlight fades
