I’ve seen the palms of your hands.

The lifelines, the bylines,
the anything-I-will-try lines.
Everything but pick-up and
snort-off-a-mirror lines.
I promise to love you lines.
The laughing lines in the backwoods,
laying in the needles of pines. Lines
of opposing colors in the sweeping
motions of your eyes. Eye liner
dripping, too much smiling,
wrinkling your skin. Tan lines,
the whalebone lining the subtle
shape of your bra. The lines
I’ve drawn on graph paper,
that curve into the fortune cookie
possibility of your posture
in perfect lines. Straight lines
never a factor, rainbow lines
the deciding feature.

I’ve seen the palms of your hands.
