Yes, I Know!
by Sharmagne Leland-St. John

He stopped
to catch his breath
and came to rest


on feathered pillows
with his head
my breast

and said,

it makes me feel
as if thousands
of butterflies
have flown
through my chest

to beat their wings
into my soul

your hands
like small brown birds
across my belly
and stroke

first fast
then slow

digesting his words
I smiled at him
and said

Yes, I know!
