Delicacy

a turn from precious

to neglect

as if i should expect

an early thaw

.

for i am raw with grief

that you do not see

as you kiss the face

impressed on coin

but do not wish

to see mine

.

i am the silk soft tide

the draw and invite

the love that buries

maliferous deception

beneath her knees

and i will disappear from you

on a stilling breeze
