Origami

 

What I remember most

are your delicate

fingers

creasing the edges,

folding and turning

to shape

everything you

touch

 

into

all the little

creatures

of creation

 

until finally and

at last, we each rest warm

in your creaseless palm,

thumping and beaming

with life,

as beautiful

as you

with your angular jaw

and your intimate lines.

 

Then,

you set us free

like paper sparrows.

 

Today

in your absence

I am falling…

 

an unraveled leaflet,

wingless and helpless,

twisting and swirling

to the ground

 

your diligent hands,

your careful expression

still folding and creasing

in your omnipotent

heaven

Baby, come over here and let me take care of your injuries. Show me where it hurts. I'll kiss it and make it better.

Ya know, when you say pleeeeeeeaaaaaase like that, it really vibrates my uvula...

I'm not normally into poems, but I rather liked this, it kind of reminded me of an autumn leaf dropping, twisting and turning in the air as it descended to the forest floor...
