of that strand of hair
that will not disengage
from the center of your face
when your hands remain otherwise occupied
is one of the seven hundred wonders
that make it difficult
to ever turn from you
though I have so very many reasons to.
To be fair
I have not actually gone out
to count the reasons;
But the fact that you probably took that
would almost certainly be one of those things
to be included
I ever opt to take tally.
