Love Affair [Day 28]

Butterflies are fluttering inside your
teeth, lips, lungs, stomach, fingers cheeks
trying to slither out into the words
slipping down into the fiery mouth of a dragon
quite unambiguously insisting on plastering
their blues, greens, reds onto the skin-
a dead, important picture frame-
the dead, important, crushed laughs
of bright colours
plastered across all of your cells,

don’t you know?
your cells remember,
they carry it with you
till the end
