That Slow Patient Sound

That Slow Patient Sound
Johanna M. Vining

once upon your face I found
my infectious laugh bounding

hands across my chest weeping tomorrows
stillness: more and less halted

breath on my cheek we shower together
another intimacy previously denied

but look not to this nor
upon the bruised mark on my shoulder

thumbprint to thumbprint I ran across your heart stone
stretched my lips across the silence between us
