New year

i like my body when it is with your
body. It is so quite new a thing.
Muscles better and nerves more.
i like your body. i like what it does,
i like its hows. i like to feel the spine
of your body and its bones, and the trembling
-firm-smooth ness and which i will
again and again and again
kiss, i like kissing this and that of you,
i like, slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz
of your electric fur, and what-is-it comes
over parting flesh… And eyes big love-crumbs,

and possibly i like the thrill
of under me you so quite new

Happy 17 years of love and happy 9 years of marriage, my dearest darling Vince. I love our late night chats, with hushed giggles and whispered wonders. I won't share them with my readers, no worries, but I'm really happy you told me what you told me last night. The longer I'm with you, the more I understand love and commitment and life. Thank you for letting me grow bigger than myself. Thank you that every day feels like new, even the days when we're unshowered and elbow deep in childcare—which is more like every day now—every day is still a new adventure because there's always something new to find out about each other and life on this good earth. Even after all these years, we feel new. 


  1. Aww this is so sweet! It really makes a difference if you have a partner whom you can share the good and the bad days with. Happy anniversary guys =).


Thanks for dropping by my blog! It really means a lot that you spare the time to read... and comment!
