serious

his skin is
slightly rough
arms, back, hands
(smooth legs though
he has smooth legs)
the roughness is nice
it feels real
it makes sense
it feels like something a girl can hold onto
his back is wide
wide
i think his scapula
could sprout wings
seriously

yes
his body
is serious
he is a man
with a serious
body
frank
honest
tangible

and i don't think
his heart
has come to grips with that body yet

i can tell it
when he laughs
