Counting Coup

Long after your rough artist's tongue had illustrated my skin, the sky darkened; we slept, and grief gathered.

Long after our eyes met, you came, and cried tears for me that had been bought for another. This is not called embezzling.

Long after you wrote this poem, there was lightning, and I counted the seconds. But even now, no thunder.
