Comment on this Work

because you asked

this is how I always know it’s you:

          the tiny birthmarks between
          your shoulder and heart and
          on the inside of your thigh;

          the sound of your blood, the
          rhythm of the slow pauses
          between your heartbeats;

          the scent of your hair, taste
          of your skin; and most of all,
          the signature of your smile.
