In the shower I
close my eyes as
you scrub my face
and open them when
it’s my turn to scrub
yours. The orange face
wash is a product I never
knew existed. It smells fresh,
un-chemical, and feels so mild
it makes me laugh,
which makes you laugh too,
which makes us both smile.
I am astounded at the
quality of your toilette
and that you’ve brought
me into it.  

It makes everything
that has happened since
not matter, not even
a little.
