4 a.m. Chicken Song

Kissing him with one hand
            in the chicken brine
                            and mine
            the kind of character

                            to worry and not worry
                            to keep track
                                    one problem on a later

              lean and breathe and falter
                        as if no hold
                                    so old:
                                    cold salt hot little hand
