Day 14: NaPoWriMo 2021

Burnt Toast

It’s late. Very late
in the afternoon when
the sky brews hollow
clouds, and air fevers

hot. Thunder bites but
it’s late, very late
before the rain streaks
soil brown as shade.

A café, we’re under
cover. Hunger calls but
it’s late, very late
for a bite to eat. We

kiss. A kiss of burnt
toast and marmalade.
We’ll wait. Wait until
it’s late. Very late.
