By Lizann Gorman

 

i.m. Raymond Carver

 

For me, you need to be
pocket sized or enough
just to fit under my tongue.

I could let you melt,
dissolve and fill my mouth
with your language.

I would like to keep you
Here, in this little room
with me, making me-

think of different ways to
say, nothing is important,
except love.
