~~ 1 ~~
ravenous kisses
his fumbling with her buttons
their first love story
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
Whoever she is,
she knows how to weave stories
he cannot take off.
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
how the guitarist
tells stories with his fingers
skipping on the strings
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
rusted wheelbarrow
white chickens dripping with rain
sad barnyard story
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
For a good journey,
she stitched a bag of stories
to tell round the fire.
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
granite grave marker
date of birth and date of death
story etched in stone
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
their old love letters
telling stories about them
to her grandchildren
