blank line (20160530)

your hand is covered in dream
wet protein
all a body needs
running down
your finger
to the curve of your wrist

i dream of tracing that line
with my tongue
licking it salty clean
but you’re already
washing clean
of the whole affair

on the blank line sign your name
trace over the letters
written before
with your hand

Poem 20150216

let that small moment be still
when the coffee is hot and pure
when the bed is warm and the floor is cold
when the bread is warm enough to soften but not melt butter
when the radio plays our favorite song
when your hand seeks out mine
when your breath is in the hollow of my collarbone
when your eyes are half-closed and your mouth half-open
let time stop in his tracks
