I AM

by Kimberly Flanagan

I am

The music to your ears

The apple of your eye

I am

The stars in your sky

I am

The crack in your full lips

The stick of sweat against

Your brow

I am

You

Me

She

Her

I am

Us

I am

The ache in your back

As you carry the bucket of

Veg and fruit

To the corner

Of that place

I am the doek

You wrap

Around your head

And the smudge of lipstick

Against your teeth

I am

The child

You carry on your back

And the hand

You shake as you

Close a deal

I am

Strength

And power

And love

I am.
