repeat after me

the first thing you noticed about me
was that you’d seen me before and
my s   l    o      w southern accent,
my impervious sway and
bit of a drawl but mostly

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 called me Lilith first. 

“how guys save me in their phone #2”
