"He is Poetry" by Emma Briseno


I trace my pale fingers

along your olive skin

Turning every page

finding poetry within.


I eat up every word

begin craving every line

You start to read me back

our verses intertwine.


I fold corners to the pages

that home my favorite works

Highlighting and underlining

all my favorite quirks.


I love your childish smile

and each budding little grey

Let’s read poetry together

each and every day.
