Melancholy Hyperbole

Poetry about longing.

Two Truths and a Lie

Fucking faggots!
and the blast of a car horn
disrupted our good morning kiss
you pulled away
I didn’t sleep with her
(out of spite)
her body moves under silver sheets
with the fluttering curvature
of a nudibranch’s gelatinous spiral
I love you
