No More References

Why should i use a simile
when the metaphor is true?
Liken you to person, place, object and thing
when they actually become you?

Why should i fashion you?
when you already seem so stylish
Impress my thumb on your forehead
with an alien, foreign wish?

As you frown beside me in sleep
in your skin, the furrowed ridges
are so much more expressive
than analogies or adages
