buttons and zippers

You occupy a notable place
beneath my ribs
underneath will and reason.

You found your way despite the thorns and shattered glass –
Despite resistance and doubt.

I occupy a notable place
beneath your hands
stinging with lust and patience.

I found my way despite the buttons and zippers keeping us apart.

We occupy a notable place
On Johnson Hill road
beneath the oak tree
on your old brown blanket
feeling things that lack forgiveness.
