Puzzle

We made like a puzzle all night
that’s the cute name you liked
Do you remember?
The tingling ants crawled inside my arm
but I wouldn’t move because you looked
so goddamn cute
And I wouldn’t paint a mustache on the Mona Lisa
So I waited with a rubber arm
for you to move and watched
your nostrils like little raisins dotting your nose
twice
your pillow lips not quite touching
but reaching for the empty line of
longitude between your teeth
that you cried about all day
was where I wanted to hang my hammock and sleep at night
But I was happy there,
half a body
watching
Do you remember?
