The Details

The Details

Detailing means to clean between
the details Degunked and dusted

The soft gesture of the paleontologist as
she encourages away the dirt
with her paintbrush and chisel

Oof Just think of the ways a kiss
can mark

Magenta stain of lipstick on a cheek
Bruisey hickey blooming up
on a neck

mere millimeters away from some
never-will-be-touched skeleton

We express our earthliness by
pressing up
against damage’s caress
