You are so much more than my feeble words can say. So much more beautiful, so much more inspiring, so much more effulgent, so much more delicious than my feeble words can say.
i've always wanted eyes the shape of almonds
because they are poetic & romantic
& to me an analogy redolent of nature.
but mine are small,
each eye one perfect half
of a perfectly formed almond,
each concaving pupil as symmetrical as ocean shoreline to sky.
i wonder if my quinep-like eyes
breaking through their pliant slits of skin covering
will always be squinting. if they are as open as they can be.
