“I’d stretched it all too thinly…”

 

45698

I’d stretched it all
too thinly,
once again
become a wraith
inside his memory
a writhe
against the hollow
of his cupped tongue
he’d stopped looking for me
I caught him looking through me,
more than once when
I was nothing more than butter, soft
laved across his toast
I’d stretched it all too thinly,
once again
become attenuated fingers
grasping for a heart
