WHAT LOVE DOES
We are here because telephones said I love you
and we could make ourselves say it back.
We are attached to each other's bodies
in an I-Hop parking lot.
when you touch my left hip
my spinal fluid turns to applesauce.
One day I will take your neck absently and kiss
the bubblegum out of your mouth.
