I'll Read Your Smile

I read your smile
there is nothing lovelier
to me than
that gap between
nose and chin

It lights you up
the handsome version
with good teeth
that you've always been

I noticed your smile
before I noticed
your shoulders

Other women do too
when you jet off
on corporate jaunts
I fret the smile won't
be for me alone

But you return
all smiles
all manly
all delicious
like crisp apple plump

I read your smile
and I become avaricious
for the sweet juice

Then I'll read your smile
and I know you're mine
all mine
and all is bliss

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
For my husband
Editing stage: 


This is for my husband. He makes me happy.
