Dear I barely know you

Dear you who will be leaving


Dear you who I have little time to know, to

Find out


Dear brief blast of reverberating shock firework display

Dear morning sticky pale pink silk kept company by suffocating arms


Dear morning sticky skin in bed kept warm by memory


Dear body I traversed in the time it takes to grow drunk

Dear body I have licked kissed bit smelled nudged


Dear taste sight Dear your eyes looking into my eyes Dear

Your beautiful eyes looking into mine Dear that crushing sweetness


Dear thin thighs Dear tail bone I touch with my thumb Dear

Come over and release to me while your collarbone my tongue


Reveals Dear I’m glad you spent the night


Dear kissing my hands Dear waiting until the last moment

To let my hand go Dear leaving soon Dear all we have is now


And a few days more Dear I need as much of you as I can get

Dear fill me up and push me ‘round and leave me flushed and

Viscous wet Dear dry rash on my chin which I don’t mind and

Won’t forget Dear spontaneous new friend it was perhaps not


The easy road I chose Dear but I chose to ride and I chose to

Straddle every bone and under white blankets Dear we hide


and Dear I’ll miss your hair and Dear you will miss mine


Dear who knows where you will go Dear who knows where I

Dear sternum which I inhale and lick, a pillar of salt


Dear and it’s brief fire you and Dear that is the truth And


Dear if I could be at peace with that I’d be the lady with

The Proof Be calm my heart be calm my bones my nerves

soothed by you Dear wand’ring one I don't and won't condemn you


Dear thank you for opening my box and striking up my match

And then for pulling out four more for once just makes one long

To catch to


Strike each one Dear don’t stop until my Dear we must

Friendship is warm and youth is warm and so in fact is lust


And so in fact is change and Dear I think you have a grasp

On my hair my hips on my hot hands and on that very fact.
