5′ 1″

german kiss


She has a slight curve to her back

Sometimes I wonder if she

would be taller

if I could only straighten her out


I imagine her floating

an inch or two

from where I

normally find her


Those red German lips

just a few heartbeats

from my thin jagged

tormented English mouth


I twist and turn

into Tuesday

as I find perfection

in that curve to her back
