The mistake

Processed with VSCOcam with h4 preset

I felt it between us,
cold and inert, like
some gecko or newt
wandered in from
outside, and without
breath quickly swatted
the intruder away,
only to discover
a familiar warmth
coursing beneath
that briefly foreign
skin, and embraced
it tenderly after
realizing my mistake.
