Stories Like Her

They write stories about women
like her, the kind of women
who smell like smoke and secrets,
taste like whiskey neat and ache,
always ache, for last call;
the stories that are burned inside
of memories and outside of libraries,
the kind of stories that make
even the driest bones wet
and the holiest knees bleed.
