  • Smooth arbutus like silk under fingertips
    was that what my flesh felt like?
    i close my eyes and try to embody you
    your hand how it explored the branches of my limbs
    how it must have lingered there in the sunlight

    what do we have here?

    The best love was when i forgot myself
    and became like melted wood under skin
