Hello, Virgo

hello.

your constraint only shows when smiling.
the wrinkles behind your eyes are more constant than most,
but i think my thumbs can make them feel better at least.
hello.
your jaw is sturdy/set/stubborn,
and i wouldn’t have it any other way,
but your formidability is a shadow that follows you,
shrouded underneath your sign,
implicit.
your eyes are too kind.
i’m just a set of chimes hanging off your shoulders,
too often wind can’t make a difference with the ground
but together you and i create tornadoes.
together we could change the formation of boulders,
quieter than dynamite,
a burst of hushed breath from soft lips.
shhh,
virgo,
your label is overrated.
even covered in the land,
even tired,
even dusty with labor,
even scared,
you are nothing but perfect.
