With Your Mouth

With Your Mouth

please

touch me

with your mouth

your hands

your whole

take hold of me

catch me

in this space i

give up to no one

i need to know you’re listening

yesterday i told you i loved you

didn’t leave you a chanel-scented sticky

between your ham sandwich

and yogurt it

isn’t tucked away on a napkin in your shirt pocket

i coughed it out to you

through tears

hoping it might catch

a crosswind

enter into your ear or heart or

hand or

head

i hoped miles away you’d feel me breathing

each inhale an expectation

an urgent

prayer fixed for you

a drawing you in

there are no exhales

i’ve already lost you

a million times over

in each dialtone each

signing out or off

your signature is a sign of tears

to come fears to face

facts refusing to falter

i get the basics:

you belong with me but are not mine.

we are in love and will never make love

again

you are happy in,

but not at,

home.

i find a world without you

each day and still

none of them matter.

i am head only.

you care not to hold

yet

can’t release my heart.
