Countenance

(Trish Jean)

What can you show there? What are you telling? Time. Travel. Weariness. Constancy.

My attention perches on small mountains, that change shape, tip me into the furrows as you trace the tale and I tag along, sliding down past the pools, falling from the bridge to sit with your words for a while.

I can feel you if I lay my hand there. Connected. Or my cheek. Or my lips. Gently pressing, for a while.
