i wish we


i wish we kept us

I wish we
            Never
sent parted lip invitations
igniting friendship embers
in tongues
            Wise to heat
eyebrows singed clear
off and blisters
on fingertip questions
             Knew
ourselves and limits
pushed before they beyond
pushed us
             Time-turned
learned and grown
interlocked fingers
to swing arms and patience
             Kept
things of time
not worn away like
pocket watch stopped
             Us
I wish we
