εἰκών γράφειν

your hands were cold
my palms moist
the few seconds we touched
lasted winter, spring, summer, fall in my mind &
i couldn’t choose
where to focus my attention
          each part of you
          equally as fascinating
                                            as the last
your asymmetrical hipbones
          unkempt hair
                    spaded collarbones
fingernails
          & brimmed lips
reminded me of iconography
your body breathes balance
                                                                            it unpeels me
          each vein, bone & pore
my indecisive eyes

i want to take you in
                        one solid gulp
                                                     i want you in my mouth

i want you draped
around me
like thousands of grapes on a vine
hanging
              heavy
                         i want to feel your weight

         i love
     not being able to decide
which part of you
                       i want most
