Of Scars in Sotto Voce


She asked about his scars, the few that were visible
As she drew her fingers along his arms and wrist
He told her a story of one with no perceptible trace
Speaking in a low voice drew her closer to his face
Expressly halting within an inch of being kissed
Inquiring if it was permissible
