Body Parts

Swollen eyes look at me above
Wet cheeks waiting to be wiped clean by
Hands that have been busy leaving
Bruises on arms that know exactly who hit them but have been carrying
Burdened shoulders that hope Ayn meant they were Atlas because
Whole worlds sit on top of
Battered body who doesn’t know
What will happen when
Burdened shoulders become shrugging shoulders when
Bruised arms become hugging arms attached to
Hands that caress
Cheeks not wet from anything but kisses under
Eyes squinting in the midst of a smile.
