In the Dunes

I walked through Provincetown after we died
Sat on that bench where we used to smoke marijuana
Rented the cottage we stayed at in 2008, got up early and
Went for a run where Freddie Mercury rode his bicycle

Hired a drag queen to drive me around in a convertible
So I could fall asleep in the sun next to a well dressed woman
I wore all black to tea dance and twirled around with the boys until last call
Fell asleep hugging my pillow

I wandered out into the dunes alone in darkness
We never made it there together, you and I
But this is where I imagine you are now, in some sandy moonlit crater
On a towel with champagne and Portuguese sweet bread
