teeth

two rows
sweet, straight, together
they belong to your mouth alone

no words
are available in language
to describe such utter loveliness

visible only
after exchanged words
and sharp intakes of breath

a small price
for lifetimes of pain
the gift that only we could know about

gone quickly
fleeting like rain
but sealed in memory
languageless, kept forever.
