Hot Snail Mail
we will develop arthritis in our thumbs our eyes will stop seeing things that don’t glow you glow like that star i’ve been trying to land on but it’s on fire &amp; i’m not a fighter my voice coughing under the pressure of telephone wires typed letters drifting in space get stopped by the nsa how many men in suits know i want you to fuck me in a swimming pool does the time apart make the moments together sweeter you’re sweet on my tongue when i’m home but when i’m not i write haikus in this journal you gave me think about sending them in pretty envelopes mostly they’re about making you come

Hot Snail Mail

we will develop arthritis in our
thumbs our eyes will stop seeing
things that don’t glow you
glow like that star i’ve been trying
to land on but it’s on fire & i’m
not a fighter my voice coughing
under the pressure of telephone wires
typed letters drifting in space
get stopped by the nsa
how many men in suits know
i want you to fuck me in a swimming pool
does the time apart make the moments
together sweeter you’re sweet on my
tongue when i’m home but when i’m not
i write haikus in this
journal you gave me think about
sending them in pretty
envelopes mostly they’re about
making you come
