Hey!! What's the story?
You lick honey from the corner of my elbow, holding fast to my hips and the blue picnic blanket. Your eyes, crinkled at the ends from too much smiling.
Break me into pieces like the strawberry pie we eat. Only crumbs left, your sweetness is gone. We break together with me still in your arms.
We break apart. Sideways, not down the middle--each taking half, but you have more than me. Like always. Iron taste, from the back of the metal spoon we shared, and my frown drawing shadows from behind the orange sun.
