tell me goodnight tonight


that would hurt

you’re so beguiling

i love you so, so much

be well and love and light

are your mantras

you call yourself a “teacher” now

what do you teach? How to document to fire your Lover?


don’t say goodnight


not tonight. that would be like having a night terror

sweating, into the pillows around my head and in front of

my body

and behind

my body

legs piled on top of each other

do you remember the tangling of legs, limbs, arms, fingers, slippery and slip sliding around and down?

do you?


don’t leave tonight

not tonight

the stars are only now coming out and the moon is a crescent over your curls

a tent

a cave


fire and light snare me now
