q finger, my chapbook published by PressPress in 2011. 24 bittersweet poems.

‘q finger’ book cover

q finger

I want to lock my face cams
on your chocolate-cake eyes
ski your hardline nose with my q finger
swipe your plush-ice mouth with my spacebar trackpad thumb
examine with my i finger
the precious folds and little faint hairs
of your pinna
trickle my j finger down the long line
from the left hinge
and my f finger down the long line
from the right hinge
of your jaw
to the sharp tip of your chin

and breathe on you like I breathed
on my babies.

Make that word
— ‘sensual’ —
mean something.
