Oh

Body Memories.

She came up for air

with the salt marsh

of her lover's patch

Smeared

across her face.

The imprint

of her woman's breast

still filling her mouth.

With everything so sweetly fused

in her brain

she needn't have wondered

how to call

these memories up

at will.

Instead

with her lover long gone,

it was impossible

to keep the impressions down.
