Verse

Hush word

Love,

I’m sorry,

you’re so tainted

with sex and lame teenage girls-

old fashioned.

Can we make it friendship?

It’s the worn grace of a seaside wall,

fluid, sexless and

just plain, damn gold;

like a Sunday morning with loud birds in the sky,

or a thing we can do together

while wearing linen shorts, rubber slippers and no watch;

easy to die.
