Your Name is Tattooed On My Heart
We sit on my parents’ faded couch
            his hand rests
       on his worn black jeans.
I touch his wrist
   he turns his palm
            I run my finger over
       dirt engrained calluses
                fresh scrapes
                      half healed scabs.              
  I push my fingers between his.
         He closes his hand
   tightly around mine
                looks at our hands
         I really love
                 how you are  so much cooler than other girls.

I look at our tangled
    fingers –
               as we listen to reruns
                           of Married with Children
                     chatter on the TV.
