I am a girl with far away eyes.
Take me outside myself, please.
It is as simple as picking up a book and allowing yourself to be read.
Tolle lege for me.
I see the anterior triangle of your neck.
Where that perfect, delicate but masculine midline meets the inferior border of your mandible and is set
against the border of sternocleidomastoid.
I learn the names of the parts of you, so that, once intimated, I may rebirth your pieces through gifting them new sobriquets.
I see your head cock one way then another.
Like a curious canine.
The radius of your eyes narrows then widens.
The diameter of your pupils expands and contracts.
The circumference of your perception swells in purple and ebbs limply.
I read your reactions and they become my bedtime færy tale.
I perceive you through closed captions.
You swallow. Hard.
The suprahyoid muscle raising your hyoid bone
The infrahyoid depressing and restraining it.
Smile. Your glands are reacting to whatever words you are perceiving and I doubt you even notice it.
My attention diffuses. My energy overflows.
My fingers fidget.
I play with the cordon looped, seven times, around my wrist.
Worn for this explicit reason. Something with which I may fret.
I practice tying knots while watching the best show not available on any screen.
