If I didn’t have this constant need to write

I could spend my whole life counting the freckles on your face
if I had the time,
if I did not have this need, this sickness,
this passion to immortalize you…
I could spend my whole life counting the freckles on your face
if I had the time,
if I did not have this need, this sickness,
this passion to immortalize you…
I could spend my whole life counting the freckles on your face–
even in winter, when their presence is not so present on your face
I would spend hours and hours squinting my eyes,
ruining them to count them.
So you would live
even when I am gone, even when you are gone…
I could spend my whole life…
if I did not have this need…
I could spend my whole life, immortalizing the freckles on your face.
