Editing poetry: Heat haze/nude shimmer

I’m not sure what to say about this other than I have some good memories from this summer. It was 2009 and I had decided to start dating again after over a year being single…

the tires unroll
in a thin line to the
horizon like black vapour trails
you shimmer
like electric current
faster than the eye
in both places
you are here
an extension of my
fingertips
and there
curled up inside your palm
blistering hot coal

wheels turn like a mantra
benign thought process
traces your path
to the place where things
start
that clinging shrug dress
bright exterior hiding
precise as a mirror

we melt
hot plastic
simple join your breath
covert
frozen in the arch
the body wants to make
you shimmer
like electric current
rapid eye movement
delicate shiver
