cheat

a second skin, strange
hairs. lighter than those
on you.

a different breath – softer,
longer. a dry, empty
mouth. straight

eyelashes, curved
clean brows,
a wide, flat hairline.

new rhythms, a few
surprises. quicker
smiles.

afterwards, a long
lie.

this is how i cheat
you.
making quiet love

to myself.
