First View

She lounges back on the horizon
arched curves pushing up from the heart
and invites me,
lures and calls me,

and into the crease
where one rise meets the other.
There, a river

slinks through lushness,
smooth and wet;
the air tastes
earthy, silty pleasure heaving
deep in my chest –
a sense of place.
