Aditi anonymously submitted a poem, yay!
it’s been so long since I wrote you a poem,
but I hope you know that it doesn’t mean
that I’ve run out of words for you,
for anything, for everything.
I hope you know that I’ve lent you a little plot
on my land, and that you’re always there.
I hope that you understand that I cannot tend to
my crops as often as I’d like to
because at the end of the day,
I only have two hands.
But with you on my land, my mind, my heart,
I have nothing to worry about.
There’s a little bird perching on my cheek
and it’s singing your name to me;
you are the smile that leaves
love wedged between my teeth.
