Tender Things

Tender things. For my love.
Tender breathing for my love.
Tender folly. Tender walls for him. 
Tender liberation for my love.
Go on home to freedom and softness with my love. 

There are new stories for him,
should he like to touch them. 
Everything’s fine. Go on home. Sleep. 
Gorgeous, kind, and careful on her way to his border,
his midwife has given his womb back to him.
