Last night’s lover
She deferred her last glass of wine, to the glass topped “coffee” table. as she got up going to the bathroom and went to bed before passing out, in her summer evening night gown.
Waking before sunrise, with a stirring and murmuring as I was falling back to sleep, I could hear her looking and finding her car keys that she had illegal parked on the curb between two maple trees.
Leaving her underwear between the sheets and without a parking ticket, she smiled and blew me a kiss, as her tires chirped with a happy squeal and went south for the winter.
spring rain on lush green
drips on dandelion leaf
sprouting an outlaw

I love this! Parking on the curb between two maples made me giggle out loud. And now I am off to read more of your poetry. I like your style.
