don't girls feel more deeply? and i feel
that we ought to, but between
you and me, how you won't cut your hair off
and the tear tracks tattooed through the phone
to your cheekbones i start to wonder
if the world got us wrong.
oh, darling beloved how deep your
smile stretches, the farther up
your face it goes, i know you want to cry
and don't tell, i do too. our emotions go fast, like
a river unwinding, we strangle ourselves
till we meet at the sea.
