Stretch marks.

Silver ripples

on a pearl pond, he says.

I don't need him to love them, but

it helps.

The chime-chirp glint in your talk

pep-drawling, through my grit-clogged Samsung speaker

 

like a wise blue hedgehog with salacious 

pips and chings of playground secrets

 

makes my covid swab a shade less eye-popping.

My cobbled, shapeless day seem masterful.
