Exploring

Image

He touches me like a savage

and he is, really,

fresh from the womb

five months ago

and in this, his second exploration

of my face

on his own, with his meaty, strong hand

he mashes into me

crashes into my cheeks harder than i expect

his tiny thumb

twisting into my tear duct.

He is learning me

clawing me

and I am so in love.
