the first thing you noticed about me
was that you’d seen me before and
my s   l o     w southern accent
and the way I smirked:
sometimes red-hot,
sometimes ice-cold.

              my name is Lilith

you called me cool
and unapproachable and

            my name is Lilith

felt
the outline of my torso move
in a light rescinding way
like the edge of a storm changing
course but

     my name is Lilith

you call me Lilith first.

“1.”
