Work Text:

you are not a man accustomed to

keeping, every good thing like silt

between bare ribs, chest

aching wide, hard bone

where flesh should be

you are a man picked clean.


understand his self in angles:

unlocked shelf packed tight

try to read his beginning or study the middle,

try to find a man within the pages


hold cheek, brush lips,

this curve wedged between your ribs,


you are cracked open.

he kissed you first.
