strength.

because it feels like
her bones are aching
from the pressure,
and her temperature
is off the chart.
we’re all yearning
for faster:
bandwidth,
relationships,
metabolism,
and fixes.

because she can’t stretch
when you are
taking up every inch
of surface space.
you’re so close
she can feel
your sticky breath;
a petition for
netball rules –
no contact
within three feet.
