a method of shading.
a way to texture.
a volumizing effect.
draw my mind crisscrossed with remembering impressions.
overlap the pressure of my skin
with the snap of your breath
in the whorl of a lipped kiss
and a bruising thumbprint.
the buildings crease like your elbows and
round in the shoulder blades on your back.
i sketch you everywhere in my eyes,
cross-hatch my heart, and hope it comes to life.
