We have been strangers.
The vibrations that drop from your lips –
I am hearing them for the first time
in new arrangement, unfiltered, unf***ed with.
The only parts of me that are real are
the skin cells lining up to tremble
under your tracing finger.
We have been
strangers, and parts
of us still are.
But my earlobe knows you well
and your hair greets my fingertips like
favorite neighbors.
Yes, I will lend you some sugar.
We have been
strangers, and parts
of us still are.
Would you care to learn my heartbeat today?
