with your ivory and onyx necklace
hung around your thick neck
like a bow string flexed
I noticed
the lines
of numbers and language that seemed
to whisper a different grammar
i noticed
the lines that dug into your soul
i hoped
you would notice my ivory smile
and onyx eyes
i hoped you could read between the lines
i hoped that you could sing my song
