Youth's Beach: 1957

June 21st, 1957, 3pm

I have touched your face

with often and near forgotten smiles.

I have walked waist deep

in every moment your body would give.

I have lived inveterate days

belonging only to you.

Like an adolescent

questing for new memories

always and only

aching for love.


yes once

only once

side by side on youth’s beach

water streaming down

our bodies touched.


I have touched your

near forgotten features

in the night.

Adrian, Samuel, Peter, Joshua and 1 more said thanks.
