when i press my
hands against
your chest
and tell you
this is home,
you turn away, mumble
about how
your bones are
made of glass.

you say that yours
is a frame
incapable of withstanding
the breeze
or too terse a breath,

carefully crafted rubble, you sigh.
decrepit, you call it. a ramshackle.

but it's here,
in the space between
your legs and ears and ribs,
caught in the safety
of your scaffolding
that suffers
without collapse
that i sleep soundly;

the only shelter i know
capable of
the storm.
