here is a reminder
in the middle of
a wintry afternoon
that i do not deserve
you – my legs
wrapped up so

a warm hand lands,
perches, massages
periodically into
that tickle threshold,
in case i were not
already completely
yours, present

present is
washing the blender
and noting how sharp
our brains can be
tuned even while our
bodies are still
rosining their bows
