Sometimes

Sometimes
i cant have enough of you
not enough of your words
not enough of your voice
not enough of your softness
not enough of your sauaveness
not enough of your fingers
or hands or arms
not enough of your toes
not enough of your narratives
not enough of your pauses
not enough of your offohs!
or your hmmmm
not enough of your breaths
interlaced with mine
not enough of roaming in your mind
hand in hand.

Joe (josephus) phrases it beautifully: the poem is lovely and intimate, and endearingly specific. I love the reality of "toes" next to the abstracter "narratives," for instance. And the repetition of "not enough" is effectively insistent.
