Of Scars in Sotto Voce

She asked about his scars, the few that were visible

As she drew her fingers along his arms and wrist

He told her a story of one with no perceptible trace

Speaking in a low voice drew her closer to his face

Expressly halting within an inch of being kissed

Inquiring if it was permissible
