Of Course Not

You sit on the edge of the bed bare

My eyes trace the outline of your tattoo

The black lines that mark your family line

Could I be in it?

If I traced your veins

One by one

Back to your heart

Could I be in it?

If I asked you every question

Every question that could possibly sit in your brain

Every thought that goes racing through

Could I be in them?

If I watched your lips

And waited for your words

As they expelled from your mouth

Would I be in them?
