Melancholy Hyperbole

Poetry about longing.

Two Truths and a Lie

I.
 
Fucking faggots!
and the blast of a car horn
disrupted our good morning kiss
 
you pulled away
 
II.
 
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
 
III.
 
I love you
