Copper against Honey


They’re copper against honey, sunlight through a bottle of whisky, and the color of earth after it rains. They’re hazelnuts and gingerbread man. They’re cinnamon, ginger, cassia and the dust from a horse’s hooves. And they’re old bookcases. They’re close hugs, warm sheets, closed eyes, and gentle waves. They’re soft rain, hard oak, dewy skin, and rough earth.
