Valentine's Day Poem (for ami)

There are bindings

There are bindings we may never untie.
Your belly will swell with our children,
will slim and swell, slim again.

Your hair I find, brown, in our bed,
stuck on my skin, will lighten.

Our rings, polished gold, will dull.

Then, when even the secret poems
on their hidden curves fade, reaching,
I find—there, in midair—your hand, in mine.

i love my poet husband.
