making me closer



Any little vestige will do
I
use your toothpaste
it
makes me closer to you
tapes
and movies, too
they all
will do

And
I
will keep them close to you

a follicle
of your hair
in
my
notebook,
and
its perfume
is you

the daisy patterned blanket
I am warmed by
is you

I crumple my fingers,
and I pet your cat

it looks like you,
and
it is you

the pillow that I sniff,
and I smell you
is you

and when I pack my bags,
and I meet you,
with your bags,

I will bring the blanket, your toothpaste,
your cat and perfume, too

but, I will leave your hair,
in case
you take your blanket back
