comme une vague, comme un poème


define vulnerability

recite it to him

like a poem

like the warnings

on pharmaceutical bottles

be as charming as you are callous

be as clever as you are claustrophobic

be as beautiful as you are bruised

and define vulnerability

like a prayer

in bed, over breakfast

in lingerie, over burnt bridges

in the breaths between imaginary kisses

over the exaggerated endings

in secret, over coffee

like the truth

like a wave

like you


a. duncan, 2017
