tuck
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, she would
 5
anticipate his obvious
 6
moves so he could kiss
 7
only the parts of her
 8
that had not succumbed
 9
to age.

Clever! I like your companion poem a lot. At first I thought you had cloned one. Then I realized your gambit. "Tuck" & "Tendons" are counterpart poems. They are a dry, wry sophisticated duet. I am already lamenting their inevitable separation.
