401 Readings

girl revisited

if i could capture
every meandering twist
of your lips 
when they smiled
i would fold them 
neatly and
place them in a 
plain white envelope 


after the years 
had gathered 
all their poesies 
i would open that
with deliberate care
unfold those lips

i would allow my fingertips
to glide along each perfect crease
discovering again
just how it was 
when you still 
loved me.
