morning after

this morning
remembering the end
of that tactless
corrosive exchange
in the heat
of the night

box of desire
opened brighter
by our frenzy
spilled onto bear rug
fronting fireplace
igniting a fire
turned to ash

a pear
its moisture
sucked dry
and at daybreak
all that's left
of our encounter

words are all
we offer
as we disappear
crushed
into the dawn
deserted

Prompt: Begin each stanza with these lines:
a pear, its moisture sucked dry and
box of desire opened brighter by
words are all we offer as
this morning, remembering the end
