"i love you"
sounded warmer in winter
when our tongues were frozen
to the roofs of our mouths
and we had to work
to get words out


to melt
under the blankets
when it got dark at five
and we had the excuse
to sleep longer

to intertwine until we were one
until we were warm


i think i loved you most
when i couldn’t feel my toes
and you had to warm them
with yours

when you were through with me,

i was already used to the cold.
