The Geometry of a Girl

I’ve measured your skeleton

forehead and thighs

I’ve made notes of the curves

of your wrists

and the bend of your elbows

and the bow of your fingers

I’ve watched your body

expand

with breath

and your smile

as you pull your hair

behind your ear

and

laugh

The geometry of a girl

cross-legged on my floor
