When I’m With You


When I'm with you I leave my body
and go somewhere simple.

I trained my body
to smile when you make a joke and nod to agree.

When I'm with you I leave my body
and go to a playground to sway gently on the swings.

as your tool chisels away at my body
it hammers me six feet under and I'm glad I'm not there

When I'm with you I leave my body
and the only part of me that stays are my lips

I sway gently on the swings and while your lips kiss
mine in this way I feel closeness between our bodies

When I'm with you I leave by body
but I check back from time to time

I suppose I owe this to my body
but she doesn't owe it to me

When I'm with you I leave my body
just smile and nod Julie, smile and nod.
