Girl

Hushed girl. Turned out lights girl. A stiller girl. Girl draped in blue soaps. Girl draining the water. Cupped hands, soft, like a girl’s. Give, give, give. Giving girl. Wrists for gently rolling. Girl against sheets like fresh air. Gentle, patient, sleepy girl. Floating girl is sleepy. Floating girl is quiet now. Floating girl burned it all up getting this far. Girl spooled out like white moonlight thread. Girl on her back.

The stars turn pink for her.
