I start with one

I always start with one

I always forget where I left off

(this is never on purpose)
I say one, two...

I move my pointer finger

from perfect tan speck

to less perfect darker speck

I focus very hard

as if it's the only
task that matters

as if I'm going to make
a million dollars

once I count

them all

I lose my focus easily
because he'll laugh

that laugh, I love

because he'll interrupt me
he'll take my hand in his and
lift my chin
with his thumb

sometimes he'll kiss me

it's always worth

a million dollars
