Between Us

brain is hungry
body can starve, for the lot
of good it’s ever
done me
suck me, fuck me
that’s easy
but tell me something i
haven’t heard a hundred thousand
times before
from other precious meateaters
that aped those same worn-out words
millenniums of existence
haven’t changed

i want more than this,
than your limitations can manage

i thought, but didn’t say -meant to

leaping mountains outside of time
beyond geography, beyond this

your eyes ensure that a
torturing is conveyed
return back to me from nowhere
which is why i lingered on
your balcony
a moment
before turning to walk
my shoes
beneath city moon
street light melancholy planets
i used to dream were shared

between us.
