I want to take you into my arms and bring you back to life
I only hit you because someone stole your face
I wanted to punish their intrusion

your body a map
I've owned for years
torn at the edges
carefully annotated

I will combine our histories and taste the flesh that glues them together
You are excavating, bringing in
Hold this and bring it close to you

Turn to me joyfully in the sun
that fills machines, tell me

"their faces lit up when we pushed out of the tunnel
like they were never dead"
