string fifteen

the child body
of dream I am
before you

*

before you disappear
it is armor
we put on

*

thin as paper
hard as pearl
our armor

*

I dress you
you dress me
reverse lives

*

reverse stem
nine lives of love
will wait for dark

*

child in armor
mother in armor
ocean at the door

*

ocean at the front door
bright foam memory over bed
tiny hand completely in
