Kiss this tired, quiet spot here.
See where I've stretched my neck away from my shoulder?
There, in that hollow,
where Matthew used to tap his little fingers while I ate:
it's just the size of your mouth
to remind me of soft skin and cereal milk
while our bed gets hot.


I am writing one poem every day in 2016, and I am using the hashtag #365poems to document my progress.
