dVerse Object Poem

This Is Not A Man

this is not a man,
this is morning’s image.
a robin’s song.

sweet tea.
this is a sea blue wave.
old spice.
this is the first kiss of the day.

this is a shoelace,
tied to my skin.
a mortal eye, a pen of truth.
night’s curtain.

this is not a man.
this is my husband.
