The ordinary-ness

<title>the ordinary-ness</title>



you can’t see you changing

(from day to day)

but I can,

(and that’s why)

I took this picture of you

(smiling and naked)

in the bathtub—¹

(we’re all dying, you see)

¹I just want to be sure

that these days aren’t lost

in unrecorded time

and that someone

(other than me)

gets to see your perfect

thirty-year-old breasts.
