Look I’ve gone and lost Look I’ve gone and lost my afternoon again in your browns, your pales, your pinks. The wind hammers the window as the bowl of my palm gentles the rolling ball of your clit; you gather and shake around the bones of my fingers. You pitch forward… My gentle, my shaved bride I can feel you scrape your name across my lifeline. My eyes awash in daylight. In my nose, petrichor.
