here's to you
(i am operating under the
assumption
that you are still alive):
you changed me

and you made me rethink
the world.

you showed me
that i trust too quickly,
demonstrating
vividly

that life balances on
the edge of a knife
every day

that a killer could be
anyone at all,
and that i was
stupid to trust
bystanders

that i should
never
feel safe

but you also
showed me
how you
were
wrong


and that
was the most
important
lesson.


so here's to you,
and thank you,

and please don't
kill yourself
or anyone else.

god,
god,

i wanna feel you as close to me
as we can be

i wanna feel you every day of
the rest of my life

i wanna feel your heartbeat in my
ears when we drift off to sleep

i wanna feel you moving inside
me and make you feel good

i wanna feel the way you make me
feel

i wanna feel you next to me
every morning

i wanna feel your soul twist
itself around mine

i wanna feel you

but hear me out, okay, what if i love my pimples
and my scars and my moles and my stretch marks
and my splotches and my flush and my cellulite.
what if i love the way my stomach folds when i sit
down and hunch over, what if i love the way my
breasts hang low and the way my fat shifts when
i lean against railings. what if i love it. what then.
what if i love my wrinkly brown labia minora and
the way it sags. what if i love the unevenness of
my breasts and the fat deposits around my knees.
what if i love my ugly bits. what if its because all
my life my body has been public property but nobody
wanted the weird and so that was always my own.
what if it's mine and mine and mine and i love it.
what then. what will you do.
she cloaks herself in desperation
seeking alteration whatever the cost
'cause whatever she's lost
is worth the altercation,
the reverberation
of the fallout of the call-out, she
built her nation from self-deprecation
we were lying in our bed
the sky glowing all red
i asked her "what's going on in your head"
she said
"what are we but two humans
trying to do what we gotta do
and knowing things that i won't tell you
isn't that just human too"
they were children when they met.
she was brave and he was clever and
they laughed themselves breathless
at the adventures they faced

slept wrapped around each other
and woke up for more.

as brave girls do, she grew up
ugly and mean and vindictive,
teaching herself to use him because
ugly girls are worthless in kindness.

as clever boys do, he grew up
soft and smiling and gentle,
because he saw her in others
when they were cruel.

the stars shone in his eyes
one night and she kissed him

(and he let her
because he was kind)

and for a moment they fancied themselves
in love
because that was the only proper thing.

as these stories go,

she wrapped vine leaves in his hair
made him out to be her young Bacchus
before sending him off to war in her name

and when
he died
she only mourned
his beauty.

or: 
"i was terrified of you. you used to say you would set my hair on fire."
"well,- it was all such nonsense, we were young"
"well, of course, but"

or: 
"won't you try to do it... beautifully?"

or:
"i have long since given up on the vine leaves."
