Six Days Before Departure
you’ll meet someone
who will touch you without hurry &
they’ll be worried about your pleasure.
they’ll tell you how Kundera changed their life's
perspective and you’ll listen more than talk
cause the amount of commonalities
will border embarrassment.
you’ll be fascinated and stay eleven hours
with that stranger. you’ll sleep
they’ll kiss your knees, you’ll talk about tattoos and
how this city made you two feel at home.
they’ll whisper things in a foreign language,
you’ll want to know every movement of their tongue
et oui, tu apprendras très vite
you’ll have no regrets,
they’ll remind you what warmth means.
it should always be like this.
