Body Print

The first time we got together I thought it was in passing
like a person eating steak pays the check and goes away
my small square hands pressing against your meaty warm ones
my legs attempting to entwine around yours
before you pulled them apart and lifted them up
removed my socks and started kissing my soles
with your sunlit eyes beaming into mine all the while
wide and expectant, and you were smiling

in Indian culture this is a sign of deepest respect for an elder
and I couldn’t separate that fact from what you were doing
me being your senior by a few years anyway
then the Indian elder will bless the youth
as I was about to do with you
that’s when I realized my life was about to change
and İ molded the left side of the bed in my mind
with your body print
