in wild feminine lines of subtle perfumes, hair styles,

freely touch whatever here or there remains natural
without fearing, though she

how the boxwood orbs
suggest she’s primarily a feeler

on the other hand, with her swings
at wild pitches, I duck

under the coffee table between innings
or skate out over my head at Christmas
