safety

two 1950's men kiss

always safe with you in the room,
the windows black, the silence cold.
no one speaks and time is old,
the empty clock, the tightened mouth.

i play chopin with no piano,
you lay,
sly,
writing your memoires.
… someday soon, you’ll be on the internet,
you’ll invent it, tattling your friends.

always fun to be a parrot in a gown,
i move through blackness, quiet heart.
said we’d be till ‘do us part’,
the holy kiss, the tightening ring.
