Kissing in public was twice as sweet

My nerves feel like they’ve woken

from sweet dreams.

Came a long way, the wind

caught up with me.

There’s an ache in my stomach.

How long can I try

to find a sense of love—

as a verb.

I would trade these cigarettes

for peppermint breath

but I’ve been smoking since

they stopped making cassettes.

Only once I’ve hoped for

a pregnancy test to be


I had to whisper liar

until I convinced myself the word

was directed at my desire,

not the pee-drenched plastic

between my fingers.

Time gave me new sleep habits.

Throbbing moved from my stomach

up through my heart

and into my mind.

If I look in the mirror keenly enough

I can push it slowly through

my contracted pupils.

I stopped singing loudly.

I should have ran around

screaming proudly

at the top of my lungs.

Instead I cry harder—


How did my fingertips stop reaching for idealism?

My palms sweat self-deprecation

and I cannot escape the gravity

of our love’s mortality.
