"Respect existence or expect resistance"


You glimpsed her in the corner of your eye

She was watching

and laughed when you caught her.

She has the hands of a lover;

They slipped seamlessly into yours

and stitched themselves to your fingers.

She hasn't let go.

When she whispers

Breath hot against your ear

Voice the lilting song of a mockingbird

She tells you how much she loves you

and how much she lives to love

and how much she loves losing.

Your ears ring with unkept promises

Too numb to feel her needle thread your heart.
