The Shirt

Standard

Smell of your white shirt
Temperature of your skin
The way you have no idea I’m looking
The way you know exactly what you’re doing
Obsessive anesthesia
Addictive sedative
How much am I allowed to keep
How deep am I supposed to kiss

The Pearl in Chest

Standard

One pearl in my chest
Gigantic or delicate
Luminous or transparent
I keep one pearl
In my treasure chest
One soul in my heart
Flawed and imperfect
Mischievous like a cat
Keeps me awake
Keeps my heart beating
