for you, from me


i've discarded the unnecessary drafts
the letterhead and formal stanzas

give me the alphabet of long glances
the faultless diction of love's second chances;

hold me pen and fold me paper
airplane me across the state line, a feathered prayer

ink me in the curve of your spine
tattoo the wings and sketch me in flight
