Metallic Mood

Benched, I sit 
lakeside, apart 
from the chatter 
to eat asparagus 
with my fingers and 
watch dragonflies 
stick their colors 
together midair. 

My eyes follow 
them blushing - 
lusting to try 
this kind of 
rainbow affair.

Instead, this guy came and stayed for about thirty minutes on my shoulder, looking at me adoringly. It was good consolation for having to stay earthbound. I felt visited.
