Summer Solstice of Love

the sun stood still on the solstice
so it was a while before people noticed
its peculiar rays penetrated
flesh like blown glass
the shadows of organ systems
pumping was distracting at first
more so than opaque flesh might have been
but the people got used to it
as we have a habit of doing
and there was something in the way
her bellows moved
that told me she was the one
