Pay attention

     Read closely—

 

So close

     that these words

          are written

on you.

 

So close

     that these words

are inked

deep

     in the membranes

 inside you;

          like, how

you were inside me,

          thirsty—

 a gazelle, 

lapping at my watering hole.

 

--

 

Do you feel it?

My words

inside you

 

closely—

drinking.
