an expanse of wooden floorboards,

polish, an oasis of blue carpet,

and he collapsed before me,

his green, frayed, splotched dress shirt,


and his jeans, holes gaping

like jagged, eager adolescent mouths

pooled around his ankles

shackled by the ecstasy

I’ve given him.

Born and raised in CA. Film, literature, music, poetry, mostly gay/queer/GSM topics. Stick around if I haven’t bored you yet.
