George

listen to this poem

The two threads of your lips push together, then jump to meet the pinpricks dotting your pupils, dancing above the luminous shirt as soft as your skin as soft as the hair on your arms, your ears perfect like little spoons opening, onto the white wall that records the name of every man you’ve loved, every mouth you’ve felt brush across your thin threads.
