Easier

by Vikki Owens

Easier when its
raining
or snowing
or just
chilly in the room where
we sleep

to run my fingers
over your body
and feel it

really
really
real

easier
when I kick off the covers
and you say
the body underneath
is my own

easy when
your lips arent moving
or you are
facing the window,
the curve of your shoulder
telling
me

Im
really
really
real

Im pretty...

watching your mind move
over my body,
I put the sheets
back on
and remember
who I am
and where I be.

Evocative imagery Vicki. Superbly constructed.
