Midnight On Drums

Waves of rhythm
are drifting across my skin.
The drumbeat knows my heartbeat.
I hear them tamp together
in three-quarter time.

We are all done waltzing,
for a while anyway.
Time to leave these crumpled sheets,
and get up to meet the day.

You have given me the power
to greet today from dawn till dusk.
I’ll meet you in the midnight hour
where love never rusts.
