     his hands have promised
     to wipe off every fingerprint
     your last lover left on you


     he has sworn he will
     wear gloves, when he needs to,
     and pay attention to the instructions on the boxes

     "this side up"
     and "fragile"

     and you have sworn
     you will try to let him


     i hear your bodies whispering these things to each other
     when you think i'm asleep
     and i've seen your nervous window-glances
     when he is mumbling oaths into your neck

     you still cherish the swirling bruises
     because you think they're all you deserve
     but i have heard the poems your skin writes
     when it is against his
     and they make me want to throw down my pen
     in envy
written by an albino sparrow on the run from her twin sister

Brilliant, truly. It really picked up for me in the last two stanzas-- those are my favorites. The entire thing is gorgeous but those last two just pulled everything together and tied it with a big beautiful ribbon.
