The Traveler

Standard

IMG_5653It’s the collar bones
she values most
that and the unbroken curve of her shoulders

As time runs its certain game
those distinct angles persist
consistent
and relatively unspoiled
despite nights where every minute
lingered visible
and interminable afternoons
loving those that never saw
another sun set

Her skin still wraps her
like a determined hug
easing
but unrelenting
