in the morning

There are certainly times
when I see myself in my mirror
while I am dressing or undressing
and think:
Hot Damn! I am glad I inhabit this body!

That, naturally, does not happen every day.

And today I want to give thanks
for the miracle that is the utter lack
of correlation
between those days I think myself most lovely

and those days – not every day
but many days
when my lover’s first word
upon opening his eyes to me
