I used to think beauty meant ball gowns, but


For Tara

Beauty exists
under blankets. This
is punctuated
by bare skin.

The sun peaked in
this morning
and found us
still talking
our childhoods.

Every word
actually meant


And when
I actually said
that meant
“You are the reason the sun rises each day.”
