The Heat Of Walking Home

I’m curious about the breath between us. The inhale and exhale.

And retention. And gasping.

And the fire it feeds.

Maybe I’m more curious about the fire.

I am drawn to the fire. And delight in running my hand over the flame.

And the curiosity is really about what walking through it would feel like.

my clothes for you. I want you

to write me a song.

There is something to

be said for sitting in the

presence of your sweat.

There are parts of my

Soliloquy

Make me say things that

I want to say with my pants

On your bedroom floor.
