appointment

he replaced my sock
slowly tugging
gently
lovingly
this side
that side
in small motions
until he found its groove
just below my knee

pulling up the sock
shutting the laptop
closing the door
gently
closing the door.

now to find the door
that has opened.

  1. This is lovely.

    I don't even know if I am imagining the scene that you intended.

    But this is lovely.

  2. hey, thanks.
    i was reflecting on various intimate moments earlier, of the non-intimate-partner variety, in the poem "intimacy." and then this struck me as the most intimate of all.
