We all have our own names
for stars
I claim the southern hemisphere
cupped temple dome
crux crowned
those distant, furiously burning cores
etched against the backs of my eyes

I whisper each emission frequency
and shift, transmute
replacing
mere light, vibration
with names of those
that I have
loved

and though those that I have
stolen names from
may have slipped from my fingers
may be distant, unreachable
may be enclosed in my arms now
they too
are etched in my core
and I, like stars,
have given up my name
for theirs

afghanistan doesn't exist.
my disposable income is fed to the local pharmacy in exchange for bright coloured lacquer, with rainbow names like 'bo peep' and 'gum bear'. how could you ever feel shame or guilt or sadness with a name like 'candied violet' so adorning your carefully manicured nails? how a cocktail of 'coralicious' and 'tangerine queen' could make you feel like anything but a flamingo? i sleep in the tropics in summer and in the carnival in winter and it shows on my nails. i don't own black. or gray. would you admit that your sweet dreams see the things your waking hours refuse to? would you dare let it slip your lips that

kiss
We breathe heavily as we face each other Hearts at a race as the truth uncovers Down my neck Rolls a drop of sweat As I realize just where we're at Anxious yet nervous   Scared is not the word but, What would happen if someone heard us The thought quickly leaves As you come even closer to me My heart skips and I forget to breathe A quarter inch from you I can't run, why would I want to? You know I want you, and I see what you want too My arms slowly wrap around your waist Your sweetness I prepare to taste We tilt heads and our lips barely touch Slowly part, then back again, This time quenching tongue's thirst for lust
