Clothe me with your tautness,

I feel you smoothen yourself over my hiccuping thoughts

and fall away to wondering folds where movement overlaps with

contours that undulate and feel

tensions that cannot be erased by touch

lines unravel across your surface

as I live, and etch themselves through subcutaneous tissue into

blood vessels which ache with the burden of carrying sighs

of whatmighthavebeens through to extremities

deadened with the numbness of what is
