Smolder

We lie on my bedroom floor
wedged
between the scattered
boxes waiting to be loaded
into my car.

His hair falls
against my face.

The shoddy recording   :
Phil’s nasal voice   :   crackles   :   hisses   :   pops
pressed into 7inches
of clear red vinyl
sparks our burn of memories.

Our breath mixes   :
with the        hum
leaking      from    the    speakers.

We lie there        after
the needle reaches the end
lifts   :   returns to its
start.
