nipples

You said: “My nipples remember you”
And I dreamt the sequence of facts

One: “My nipples remember you”, you say
Two: “My nipples remember your teeth”, you insist
Three: “My nipples remember your teeth biting”, you enjoy saying
Four: My teeth biting your nipples, I start corresponding
Five: My teeth biting everywhere, in a crazy mode
Six: My teeth biting; my mouth kissing; my mouth sucking
Seven: My mouth opening to bite your nipples again and again
Eight: My mouth again and again remembering you
Nine: Asking to be kissed, to be sucked, to be bitten… until the blood makes a purple circle of swollen skin around your nipples
Ten: and you said, “My nipples will remember you”
Again and again I remember the whirling sequence of facts
Every time you write: “my nipples remember you”

And I dreamt the sequence of facts

One: “My nipples remember you”, you say
Two: “My nipples remember your teeth”, you insist
Three: “My nipples remember your teeth biting”, you enjoy saying
Four: My teeth biting your nipples, I start corresponding
Five: My teeth biting everywhere, in a crazy mode
Six: My teeth biting; my mouth kissing; my mouth sucking
Seven: My mouth opening to bite your nipples again and again
Eight: My mouth again and again remembering you
Nine: Asking to be kissed, to be sucked, to be bitten… until the blood makes a purple circle of swollen skin around your nipples
Ten: and you did say, “My nipples will remember you”

Again and again in a whirling sequence of messages
In a pathetic sequence of desire and solitude, of detachment and distance
You say once and again: “my nipples remember you”
