She’s got this face


That pouts





Pulls her arms together


In cold rooms


So her breasts meet in the middle





Sips milkshakes between pursed lips


And talks to me with wide eyes


Steeped in pale green


Like windows


To better places.



But tonight, at midwinter,


She’s trying to hide her


Snow white calves beneath


Our table and a layered dress.



I stir my coffee


Thinking her over


And I say to myself:


They’re thick


They’re pale


And they’re absolutely
