In the thick cerulean light of evening
A dyke astrophysicist’s dream
I pray to any god who will deign to hear me.
That’s my actual tongue circa 2014 in the photo. I thrive on bad choices.
The drawer where I kept my dingy addictions
Black as fresh-made coffee.
You have to listen to “Dead Friend” by Against Me! when you read this poem. Sorry, I don’t make the rules.
I see violets blooming between her teeth.
What are you building, sickman?
Rain: translucent, crystallized youth on sticky, tender lips.
Why are all the men I’m attracted to old enough to be my dad?
