day 10 of 365
she called me, 3 a.m.
we had a little casual conversation.
she invited me over tomorrow.
i was entirely too excited but
i answered with a “yes” so bashful
that i could almost feel my eyelashes fluttering upon my lips.
we hung up
& i think my skin has left imprints
of love on the walls.
a part of me is still against the wall
down the hall
like a teenaged girl,
the other part of me is here,
daydreaming in the middle of the night
about tomorrow and the delicacy of her
staring at a black ceiling, seeing the sunset.
— this is how an angel cries
