from the grapevine

10 Jun

when i say

i am learning to love you

it includes scraping back

the meat and

finding the bone

it means counting

fractures

running the tips of

my fingers

along

every

thorny

break

this involves

marrow

as much as

i can eat

while

sitting at your patient feet

it means numbering

every piece of you

to gently return

fully

seen
