oh violet.
you little screamer.
we like you, ok?
but best when you are tiny.
your itty bitty voice 
says hi with a left hook

just look at you
do you really think
i could have
missed you
between the dove stones 
and acid green blades?

i make an attempt
to hush you 
and say
just please wait your turn.
but it is impossible
for me when

you crook your little
finger and pull me to your
teacup of a face
to land a violent bruise 
of a kiss
