Purple | Tufts Observer
Poetry & Prose

Purple

your leg twitched asleep,

your comfort was astounding.

i thought you were in love with me

prompting piercing swallows

each bluer than the last.

now i want purple

winter lips

oozing grapes

bruised collarbones

plum candles 

squeezed fingers

lilacs.

i wish i could be tender 

with you.
