i'll learn origami if it'll please you

and if i learn a few new tricks in your absence,
what of it?
i'll learn origami if it'll please you
to own a papered penguin
delicate and small, creased with my perfectionist longings.
i'll make hemp rings and necklaces, laboring quietly
(and sometimes impatiently,
sometimes letting forth
a slew of cusses
as i fuck it up again)
if i can see you wearing them,
a product of my love
so close to your sweet skin.
if i learn calligraphy,
if i learn to tap dance,
if i learn to sustain,
i am doing it all for you.
