blouse

you do not
want to know this
but your poem
is as the sighing
of your blouse
while it drifts
from your shoulders
to the floor.

and when I
kiss you I do
not hear angels, but
a weary, familiar
voice, intoning
“your journey
is not begun –
begin again”

I do not pretend
that my experience
outdoes yours, but
humor me please
as my fingers find the buttons.
They tend to stagger
and it has been
so long.
