She looked beyond the outer edge with twigs stuck in her thighs.
I watched in disbelief for cold was in the night.
A day or two, a pass, a turn of heads across the floor.
She saw me in her dreams where the grass could grow once more.

Perspiration reached our brow,
Exhaustion as our cigarette.

Though itís cunning smile broke through the net.
