poetry peeks into bodies of others while reading the size of my heart
spring break butterflies fluttering in twos I do it alone
night falls between her breasts the creaking bed by frosted windows
poetry loves transitive verbs but I fondle abstract nouns
beige clouds blurring my ancestors and I together
