I used to not like the
inhumanity of it
how sterile, cold
and pristine

but I have eased
become enticed by
the smooth endless rim of a cup
betrayed by just a speck of spilt tea.
the insecurity in the sheen of your hospital wrist band
clinging tightly to the reflection that once
you may have felt stronger than this.



but I read nostalgia in
the tired eyes lacking
the morning after
yearning for the freshly washed
sweaters and sheets.
absence felt in the contrast
the grit on my teeth
toothpaste cannot evict.

He said it was
a perfect medium
portraying possibility and space.
If I could slip quietly
curl up and hide
I am beginning to understand
your patient allure
clean and juxtaposed early in the morning.
