tendons
unknown

when they had finally finished
 1
tucking away the events of
 2
the day and were left to
 3
confront the mess of
 4
each other, he would kiss
 5
clenched fists until tendons
 6
released fingers to
 7
form wilting sunflowers.

Please see companion poem -- "Tuck." Of the two, this is more poetic. Sunflowers was an inspired end note.
