apertures.

if you remember that day,

the characters and unwritten script


the end of august in rapidly spliced frames

holding keys in my mouth


pulling strands from my neck and

wrapping my hair in the melting sunlight


my eyes burned from mincing garlic and

you smelled like vanilla and leather
