now you are stars

this turning you do. eyes cast down and to the side

A fever sparks its way up my abdomen

I. Loved. It. when I turned my back to you

And you held your arms around my chest

Remember when you shaved my face

in the bathtub? I have a ghost of a memory walking the creaking floors of my flat

You flit by the windows at night the street lamps,

Catching your shoulders. Reminding me you were

Reminding me we were

I miss the nape of your neck

And your voice pitched low

In the dark of dark
