Poem in which she hides a love letter

In the first paragraph, I’ll say:

Taking part in you is like

wallpaper inside the head.

Everywhere I think, I see you.

Show me how you do it,

I’ll stab my peas the same way.

Show me how you drown,

I’ll sink low the same day.

Ask you to stay.

Stay for your life.


And in the second, I’ll say:

Back of my fork,

back of my back to the start.

I asked your wife how you liked your coffee,

just to hear her be an echo.

She’s just an echo.

But then all I do is build

echo chambers around you

as you close your eyes,

and say: No, you stay.

Sarah Francoise
