your teeth made the first cut
slicing my belly button into equal halves
your hands peeled back the skin of my stomach
and reached inside
to a concavity in my ribs
that wilted at the pressure of your touch
and when you wrapped yourself around me
you could feel my breath on your stomach
and you hoped i didn’t need to be stitched back together
