she would always call me such a stupid girl.

such long cupped
fingers, pythoned
above my collarbone.
guiding me
off my feet
and against the wall,
as the back of head
kisses the
poorly painted plaster.
and in that moment you
became the milky way
in my eyes;
mouth agape for
another embrace of
palm to cheek that
leaves that metallic
taste on my teeth.
I lick away delicately,
as your lips inch toward
my ear in a brutal whisper
to explain all the ways
a mother loves her daughter
