I Will Tell You

Posted on 13 February 2010

I will tell you if there is an afternoon
that doesn’t know the lengths to which I have gone to exist.
Or the number of hours I tried to fasten
to my sleeve when I didn’t feel like awakening.
I will tell you if there is a large medallion
I can sit on for the rest of the evening.
Or a large cubicle
into which I can place the straps you removed from my chin.
And if I’m pouring your honey into my cup at the same time as I’m doing this,
please, don’t hold that against me.
I wanted something sugary that would remind me of something.
And that would tell the last inning hostess pulling the morning out of my purse
that the winter restored what the summer removed from my eyes.
