Reborn by Robert Beveridge


She remembers
the way he felt
inside her

as she wakes
if it was a dream

his arm now draped
across her stomach
strong, defined
darker than her
summer-swimsuit belly

she moves him
much slower
than she did before,
and sits up—

expected blood
between her thighs.

She wants him again
through her soreness
and bends to kiss
his chest.
