As you say my Name
Within a moment's grace
She held my heartbeat against her gentle dialect
Her pearly smile and chocolate diamond retinas
Prescribed laughter, as she
Spoke my name
Vowels tripping against her nervous steps.
Her facial tone became tomato's rejected lyric.
My dignity, stunned.
My smile, overpowered.
She held me close to her digital breaths,
With apologies, unforced
There is a charm within her tender innocence.
A charm I may never physically discover.
This smile cowers
With a silent exhilaration
