Park love

like lovers do
once we parked in
wired valleys
shook leaves from lemon gums
hid in Cimmerian myth
stirred the river oil
while the motor cooled

obsessed with love
we warmed to faded sunsets
opened our ripe bodies
to the silky underworld
while the radio hummed

furtive we climbed
over bulging Holden seats
toyed with our bareness
tangled love in knots
while the wind wooed

we claimed the back seat
a hard travesty
of lost space, feet
and perspiration
while we pressed

at midnight
flashing lights caught
us laughing
to cover our young bodies
blowing smoke rings
while we cooled
