My Hair

I remember you
                         after Flavius J. Fisher
Maggy Roza

The sun sets in a burst of color,
settling into the hills
the way I sank into your arms, the way
you gave yourself to me, the way you held
my hand as if you were afraid
I'd float away,

the nights we spent together
on Fisherman's Wharf, telling no one,
knowing everything, the way your passing
glances made me feel
          on fire             in harmony
doused in the light of God or the Devil,

and I don't know what the birds sing
at dusk in the swamp, because all I hear
           is your name
spreading like rings on the water,
      in my veins          in my mind
how  I wanted to shout that I loved you

but I was afraid of the echo, the way
the sun is afraid, the way it sets
in a burst of color
because every time might be its last.
