found poem (revised)

1.
Remember, bent
knees beside your shoulder
purple tie
belted waist
breath in swallows

2.
look up the word freckle in the dictionary
harmless brown patch
clustered color
genetic like grass from soil

3.
the bathtub grows arms
when body dips inside
smooth porcelain container

4.
she is gulped oceans

5.
roots
sing me awake

6.
bruise love
in
turquoise & promises
nightlights & pillowcases
belt loops & pulled zippers

7.
manatee falls in love with elephant
swim toward new species
hunt grey swim

8.
your memory is of August trees

9.
to be left or to leave
dried salt
drunk off preserved time
