will you tattoo
a symbol of your
embrace across the
tops of your shoulders
when we part
so that those you meet
and touch with you words
(as you did me)
will understand the
strange and enjoyable
flowers growing in your head
and the small girl who
sleeps in your ribcage
and whispers words to you
at night in languages
you cannot yet decode
