love shakes hands firmly but then trails
a finger a little bit up your arm
trying to give you goosebumps
and smiling a little too much

sometimes love gets kinda swooshy
like wind moving really fast to kiss you

sometimes it’s a popsicle on a warm summer day
eaten and cold and a little bit like koolaid
or melting and sticky all over your fingers

i love goosebumps from soft fingers
and wind and popsicles
and love loves them too
