I carry your straight lines

Gifted and grafted

On the slick of my skin,

Raised white, thin,

Stick straight just like your legs,

Relics from a time when

As children

We would speak at night

Through the gap

In our father-made bunks,

Our voices splinting

Off the stained-dark wood,

Whispering about: what?
