where did you learn how to do that?
(as if it's some kind miracle.)
(some kind of something he has never had.)
but he does this to me;
like spring does this to me
after a long, hard winter.
we are tangible. tangled.
up in breathy, leggy, love. chickadees,
black-capped and full, sing.
you continue to surprise me.
then later, as sleep is near:
i think i've gone to heaven and back.
his dimples, they break my heart when he smiles;
makes me wanna put my hands in his hair. kiss him harder.
and i do.
