Just a book I've read

At first glance 

A pretentious, hypocrite

With a disposition to be horny


Elio Elio Elio


Twisting words so compelling 

Make me feel for you 

Feel with you



Elio Elio 


Why do you yearn 

For a man with little love 

And none to give

Not permanently 

Never indefinite 




You caught me 

somewhere in the words

You weave them well

I’d be your elio

I’ll let you 

Call me by your name




If it would please you 

If it makes me more 

Than so and so 

Fucked and forgotten

I'll call you by his name

In more than lust
