they said
your pupils dilate
when the
walks in the room,
but he came in,
so his eyes
crinkled up on
the corners
i’d kissed sweetly
another time
he’d laughed
and i was struck
by the way
he stood
and his shoulders
were strong
and held promise
and safety,
like his arms
when they pressed me
into his chest,
and i swear
he was glowing,
just enough
to be the only thing
i saw,
and if “they” are right,
my pupils disappeared
into an ocean of blue.
