The wind did this to you

The wind did this to you.
Wrapped you in the afternoon’s
breath, cold off the sea
licked your soft new skin
with salt and the roar
of a thousand miles of memory.

You grabbed at it
how could it be so slippery
and hard to see
your arms flapped
your chin shiny
with drool
you shrieked
and giggled
like a possessed

by diffidence
hard-core frolicking
you and the wind
were entwined
and no one could say
for sure
if it was you
or the wind
at the mercy
of this passing moment
of joy.
