Your fingers slide, I believe trees, I don’t care, Brick walls, No one should, After sex, I used to hit leaves in the yard, Intimacy now, I can’t help but think that the couch, I would tell you more about my dad, Dried blood, There’s a richness, Today the YMCA/YSAP, I fear the, unseen moments, I want to ask johns, I find it strange, And yet here we are, When you place your entire understanding in writing
