In a moment in time
The pier seats stared against a misty background
Sitting opposite each other
They had been caught
Trapped by the wind
Between the shutter and its window
The blind and its light outside
She fell to one side
Her hair straightening to meet his touch
Looking at her he drank with betrayal
Her betrayal
Then a smile met his lips
As he reminisced to where they were before
Prior to the sin
The adultery
Her unfaithfulness
Prior to all the phrases he had slept with now for the two months past
She smiled hopefully
Anxiously longing to kiss his soul
To regather, return
Peeling paint swept the pier seats toward their weathered jeans
Kissing for the first time
Remembering for the last
Her affair had passed
