to see if i can keep a part of you

my mouth is small
my tongue is short
but every part of me
craves something bigger

feels like i was born
with an impractical imbalance
an insatiable want
for everything
all at once
on a plate in front of me
for your hands on my face
and mouth opening
as wide as my cold lips will stretch
to see if i can swallow you whole
to see if i can keep a part of you
indefinitely

i mostly just want
to touch something
closely
and have something
touch me
