in four parts

part one:
do i spend lifetimes waiting
for the easy step of your feet,
to turn on their heels and leave
the gap between my teeth?

part two:
i do,
and i have
no reason to
be waiting 
for it.

("so turn a new leaf")

part three:
i never knew i was
intoxicated with the
memories of broken
things, until you told me
i could never be back
there again.  i felt so 
relieved, to know all 
my winding dreams
were inconsistent with
the reality of this place,

and with you.

part four:
my heart hurts.
below my breast
it waits for your hands
to console, and your lips
to ease the emotions
that always get me.
