Verse: Camera

I took
some old words
and made a camera

and this
is a picture
of you

I put in
all the things
I love about you

your soft lips
your small hands
your sighs

the way
your body curves
into the couch

at night
with your fingers
dexterously knitting

forgive me
if it seems
a little hazy

you know
I never had
an eye for detail

and I never did
finish counting
all of your freckles

or find
the right shade of green
to describe your eyes


  1. Maybe I just prefer love poems. Maybe I wasn't old enough or experienced enough before to enjoy poetry, because I truly appreciate your work.
