Teeth brushed clean,

bra unclipped,

first fresh air,

shoes unslipped.


Downpour in the heat,

fresh clean sheets,

flash-filled kitchen floats on the scent of coffee beans.


Post-hike pint,

pre-booked taxi arrives on time,

first shower after the fest,

sink into pillows instead of wet grass-mess.


Downers on the outside,

crashing loud, a landslide,

blissful moments just in reach,


if incomplete.

Side by side,

Weighted nights by fleet-foot rays of light.
