What she says

years later
i'll still remember the thumbprint
pressing steadily at the furrow above my eyes
humming,
"there's a star on your forehead"

don't wrinkle it.

    Narph, like, I can only vote three times a week, so stop posting TOO MANY POEMS IN ONE WEEK. That's my way of saying I really love your poetry.

    It was one of Mel's poems, Birthed I think it was or something like that.

    Yes, I know exactly what you mean by that - moments that will forever be ingrained in your heart that was probably just a passing comment by someone. I love those!
