after a few months

before coming to
you came through to me
on a gray day like today
with my feet in their socks
with my fingers aand your knots
it felt like tattooing an orange peel
all that poking through
my fingers got sticky
and you put the ink away
i bet you didn't know that you could take
each of my four limbs
and nail them to the corners of my room
or that i'd smile so sweetly while you did it
i imagine that we've been here before
but my mind is always playing tricks on me
