i want to be fed plates of turkish delight.
lick sugar quickly from my fingers before
it turns to snow. i hold autumn to my skin
until i am your goose-fleshed lake. a box of inferos
lives inside my bones. you reached deep
to pluck a match & strike it across my chin.
poles are melting quicker than when can put on our shoes.
the door unlocks itself but that's alright, we no longer
have parents. i have spent so long sleeping
in the hallways of the world. broiling summer
parking lots. an ice cube from your soda cup.
melting in your hand & then pressed into me.
