interior decorating

 

these

matters of the heart

are barely

smoked up rooms

where you lay down your bones

when you’re feeling

sentimental

 

meanwhile

I sport wallpaper skin

you nail photographs

to my chest

straightening

whistling

around our shortcomings

 

I’ve never been one for interpretive dance –

 

all elbows, you are

whole body, I am

 

so now

 

I steer my grief

so much like a ship’s sails

around your ambiguity

that is haunting me
