songs of ashes

these past months
i have seen only
the side of your face

never full frontal,
absent the nakedness
of eyesmouthslipsnose
free of paint or hats,
just the sides
as if you were mocking the moon

just your jaw,
only your profile
(a page on the internet
does little to compare),

maybe one glacial eye
behind hoary lens;

i think i am in love
with the side of your face
the other side has large shoes
(if faces can be said to wear them)
to fill

i hope you never turn your head
it might break my heart
