Not Forgettable

by Ted E.F. Roberts

after stretched hearts and
out-loud love        we writhe
in a chaos of
snarled sheets, haiku parts
and aphorisms.

nothing about you
is forgettable.

your breathy hushed moans
and damp crescent eyes,
the “C” of your toes,
dancing demands,
defined desires and
the soft joys whispered
till deep in our after.

nothing about you
is forgettable.
