BUT THEY ARE KIND AND SWEET


thumb and index finger on either side of my chin
pinky raised as if holding a glass
and this they will like
I don’t ask who THEY is, what THIS is,
why THEY will LIKE THIS
not destined to become a detective
be suspicious of the beautiful,
they want for nothing and ask for everything,
but this girl with these eyes
fingers squeezing down to the bone
they’ll see the hope and choose her anyway
said like a curse
