long press

i press my body
long and untamed
against every strand
of coarse hair
that looms long
unraveled behind
unlocked doors
tucked in cupboards
the cold of a cup
once warmed by tea
against unclothed skin
stings with reward
of the woman
left too long
in an empty house
with nothing to comfort
but thoughts
of not dying
in her dreamless sleep
