Cardigan Coverage


“Dot” | Gonzales, Solo Piano, 2005

Over a lovely green dress, straps not quite enough wide,
you tried on four black cardigans.

One was too long
One was too warm
One didn’t provide the coverage required
to keep eyes from prying about our affair

I marked you.

Under an army green shirt I am writ with
spidery scratches, the cartography of conjugation

You marked me, but I have nothing to hide.
