THE DAY I KNEW I LOVED YOU

1.
convinced myself to forget
your name became secret music
tucked between my hips

2.
what love lets a man hover?
here is the dark door
here is the sweet aroma
here is rice
here is children’s laughter
come, eavesdrop on this life

3.
forgot myself
your music name
convinced
secret
hips

4.
prayed: if we choose
this collision
let him unlock his chest
treasure of rubies & afro picks
remember sugar & freeze tag
erase his Daddy’s fire hands

let us be a wild undiscovered spring
let us sip from each other’s magic
No
let us gulp
drown
resurface
reborn
& strong enough
to walk away
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
