How is It?

by Camilla Jean Welsch

How is it

that my heart is actually

warmed by you?

That I feel you buzzing in my chest,

my face, my neck.

You taste of nothing but fiber…

so light…

and the pH of a bright cherry,

or something like…

and you dazzle me.

First, I gaze up at you.

Then I close my eyes and smile.

You are with me

A tear falls vertically.

How is it?

that you would give yourself to me?
