This is our first dinner: we sit
in a restaurant, you are
in an olive green dress, carrying
a Louis Vuitton handbag, I am aware
of my heartbeat;
the paisley rug,
the crewel embroidery curtains,
the engraved copper
samovar, kahwa, remind of home;
the evening is dewy,
food rich. I am caught in the finesse
of your eyes, lips; weaving the net
of my new dreams.
