Exactly

My body is this opaque casing

for a spirit achingly transparent,

If it weren’t for my rib cage

it

would slip down my forearm,

out the half-moon of my sleeve.

I will tell you what I want you to know,

I will love you all I want to love you,

(despite convention or fear),

because when this world comes down,

I want you to know,

exactly

how and who I am.
