A Cute Boy; A Dead Girl

She and He and I and We

Exist as multiplicities

We two are one and less than love

But lovely is as deadly does

We are them that perhaps won’t

But maybe do, or maybe don’t

And blood is very definite

Friend

She lies to you, you lay with me

We kiss in a library

Where braver hearts have lived to dare

The stacks are groaning, breathing air

Muted whispers, crying boys

Faeires float above the noise

Of a vague blowjob

Shhhh!

Thee and thou

You’re guessing now

Whose best and book

Whose book and friend

And will you love me ‘til the end

But we’re already dead

We dangled first, and then we fled

Extinct

Leaves and hand and hand in glove

We steal away, with God above

Through lifeless lips, incanted spells

Though dead, we learn life lessons well

She and I and all of you

Know exactly what to do

Love
