“How are you?”
The silence is deafening,
but I remember that I’m a catch.
“What’s new with you?”
I was let go on a screen.
I don’t recommend the feeling
for my mortal enemies.
Then again, I realize
the biggest enemy I ever
had courses through me.
She wants to destroy every mask she sees.
She’d suck the virus from your lips.
Your hands are clean enough for me.
I will kiss them dry.
Will you hold me where it hurts?
I will cook an egg for you in the morning.
This is not the time for love poetry,
but will you come find me at the end of the world?
