I Thought We Were Exes

Give to me
the softsharp press
the moons of your nails
at the dip of my spine,
give me a reason.

I am hollow,
on the uncertain breath
of waiting. I
could swear

it was your voice
in the night
behind the moon.
But when the air cleared, clouds
you were gone.

I have but one answer
for all this trembling air:

I heard your voice in the night.
The uncertain breath
off your lips
behind this curtain
of waiting.
