The Symptoms (The Signs)
By Gabriel Stelian-Shanks


Right as you woke
the pale blooms opened
as if you were sun

As if they knew
dew rose on your skin
before the day did

And dream-soaked eyes
peeked out of bedsheets
as if you bloomed too

You blinked, I think,
as you lied, said we
weren’t morning people

Because dawn breaks
when you grin, yawn, stretch
and then I’m cured

Of a sickness
I didn’t know
I had.
