They say

That couples who live together

For a while


Start to share a microbiome,

That so many of the little pieces

Can be matched up.


Well we’ve been living in and out

Of each other’s pockets

For a while.


The flowers in my mind

Have all grown in your direction,


They cannot be swayed by bad weather,

They reach for you when I wake.


And here is where you will find me –

A cluster of all the little pieces

Threaded through your being,


Our molecules interlocking tighter than our fingers do

Every time we have to say goodnight.
