there is a bit of

there is a bit of
you that takes me
out of me –
that’s what it
boils down to –
an awakening
that is more like
a peeling away

i am delicately

i am delicately
peeling into
this memory i have
of you – how we
rarely had
lychees
in our youth
unless
you were visiting –
maybe you’d carry
with you only
a small bag of
the sweet fruits,
and still, it was
up to us
to peel away
the tough outer
layer, past the inner
membrane,
to get to
the unforgettable
part, the stuff
of memories

please play some music

in any given

in any given
instance, we are multiple
layers, waiting to

be revealed, gently peeled off –
start here at this corner, please

you come in

you come in
late, and i pretend
to be one
of those girls
who peel
off, nice and
easy, leaving
no sticky
residue, no
need for extra
rubbing. i have
a jar of peanut
butter in one
hand, a cold
spoon in the
other, and enough
words to swallow
before the jig is up
