Brown Eyes

I like to watch your eye twitch
watch your nose bleed, watch
your cat drink,
and when I watch you I think of
molasses, sweet and bitter,
how once you told me about
molasses cookies on Sundays
like cartoons
your eye twitching again
as you look into my eyes and ask
is there silence underwater?
