The Ways You Love

You love like this: a headfirst love, an outright love,
a vigilant, attentive love,
a stubborn love, a headstrong love. You love

the way I have always wanted to be loved:
with all of your insides and with all of your outsides,
you love with your careful fingers;

you are always untangling the tangles of me.
