you know how it feels to trace up the back of your bare legs with the toe of your other footHow your body feels a different jolt every second while you move up from the back of your ankle to the back of your knee
sometimes i do that
just to make myself feel.
feel the first time our lips collided like a man gasping for air has found the shore
and breaking apart would make him drown again
i refuse to go back
in the water again.
