Magical Pockets

I am so 
in love with you that 
all my secret pockets 
have been turned inside out
revealing old pennies
flattened by rusty trains
cat's eye marbles
miniature gold shoes
that my dentist gave me
when I was seven 
one small moon ball
that bounces very high
and glows green 
when you look at it 
in the dark along with 
the thing that now keeps 
me safe so I wear it 
to remind me just how
love feels disguised
as a thin brown cord
tucked beneath my shirt.
