Poem: Before and After


i’d rather have you,
every groggy morning,
kiss my stomach
through (your) thin gray t-shirt i threw on
than hear the sound

go on and say i’m crazy.



when times have
tiptoed off
what do we have
but contour memories
toast crumb words
crudely reassembled.

all i gathered were sensations.

and will the skin forget?
