who really wants to get close?
(mind the gap)
and who invited you anyhow?
closeness is a fever dream:
wake up, honey.
don’t touch me, i am wild and shy.
S. was talking to me about submission
after we overcame the distance
(she had all these ideas about power and governance)
and it was impossible to look her in the eye
for longer than a wink
she never knocked on my door again
did you just say “intimacy”?
could you please speak
