I have read your entire body with the tip of my finger
what I couldn't touch I have imagined
the parts I memorized, I can recite by heart, line by line
at a moment's notice

I've drawn your silhouette with the tip of my tongue
the joys I've never felt before, I have experienced
the shapes I recognized, I've kept inside a heart-shaped box
under my soul-shaped pillow
