your face

By Sabrina Tian ’24


there are moles on it 

and they are black and brown

like your eyes

and your hair

and my eyes

and my hair 

and my moles

are black and brown too.

i wish i could jump from one to the


like a frog in love.


we can have moles together

dig holes with moles together

kill crows and sip joe together

get towed and break toes together

touch my nose to your nose.



There is a bump on your nose

that i wish i could lie on

beside all your moles.
