Sway

By Kim Malinowski

Lip to dry lip
we hover,
shoulder to shoulder
muscular and pliable
dip, bend,
release.

We motion with our bodies
an abstract thing
like love.

How can I tell you
that the freckle on
your left cheek
is why I worship you,
that you love
me as your fingers drift
through my hair?

How do we continue to breathe?

                 
Kim Malinowski writes because “I am a lover of words and the alternative is unthinkable.”
