This Arrangement We Have by John Grey

Yours is a loveliness
not just in lips and cheekbones
but in that gentle fundamental
some call the soul
but I refer to as the watch dog

making sure your eyes see the right people,
your hands touch where
the appropriate response awaits
and your heart only falls in places
where it will not be broken.

Yours is a loveliness
for which no explanation is needed
unless you hear it first from me.
