Do you love this ear here
the one you so gently kiss
despite its imperfect workings
or is it
my lips slightly offside
and smirking
or how i crow when i laugh
fall into cascades of hiccuping repeats
you said you said
or is it my eyes-
ocean blue you call them with light built inside
whatever it is that drew you to me
speak true
that i may bottle it up
for some unclever day
when the brewing clouds cast doubt your way
let me capture that moment
with clarity you knew i was yours
so that i may entice you with its perfume forevermore
so is it
the lighting
the red lipstick -oh, I know you hate it
the way i drill you with debate
tell me
else i guess wrong
and curse you in Love’s fate
