    Selected Poem
To a Girl
You are softer than my husband
And more fluid.

Your steps are heavier—
You move with more direction.
You’re someone else’s cologne on my pillow—
A rush where adrenaline shouldn’t be.
You leave footprints on my skin That smell like lip-stick; They taste like your shampoo.

You breeze through me
Whispering recollection Of my patch-work past—   Sordid, sweaty,
More colorful than my pristine future.

You are not a sum,
Just a loose arrangement of your parts—
Tits and ass and combat boots.
You are stamped
With a skull and crossbones;
You are my own face
In a carnival mirror,
Familiar, necessary… And yet you
are not What I chose.

You couldn’t lift me up
Over your head like he does.
You wouldn’t need me to iron your shirts.

You are the temptation
My mind runs with,
Sits with in the night drinking whiskey;
You are not for my hands.

You are not for my hands.

- Kristyn Sherman
