She holds two fingers to her temple
as she crosses the street
so her hat does not blow away
her feet almost touching the ground.

She holds the ocean blue vase with two fingers
and then sets it down on the counter
the salesman tilts his head (yes? )
-she shakes her head no, and turns away
counterclockwise

She holds two fingers to my lips
when I try and thank her for the book
another gift for no reason

she doesn't want reasons
she doesn't want a conversation
she wants only the silence we share
and my two fingers on her wrist
