Reflection

By Matt Steel
24 Mar 2013

I love the curl
that only appears
on your temple
after washing.

I know the way
your toe bones crack,
when to dig
for the right kind of hurt.

I hear the vibration
in your laugh, as feeling
plucks a note
beyond thought.

I trace the curve
of your hip, the moon.
My body, the sea. Giving no light
but your reflection.
