Never Take Notes

By trekkiepirate

I sit cross-legged on the bed

and stare down at alabaster

marble: his flesh, tracing

new constellations down

his back. Bangs cover

closed eyes like

golden gauze curtains.

The notebook lays open, but

blank, at my other side:

third wheel in the affair. I planned

detailed descriptions so that

years from now, when gray hair

usurps brown’s current majority

memory falling victim to

Time’s ravages, I will find the

unborn poem and seeing this

moment: him as though through

a cinema’s projector

Forsaking my pen,

my fingertips write nonsense

across his shoulder blades.
