May 5th

I am excited 

for things to come

things have come

things never to come

I am excited

for the warmth of another's flesh 

a contrast to the chill of this 21st century  room

two bodies

two souls a mesh

things to come soon

I am as excited 

as the revolutionary pueblos 

against the rule of the French

and you think "That's an odd analogy"

but don't forget where my decedents are from 

This soul born under the conquistadors sun

don't forget the root to this flower in bloom

hearts beat to the ryhthm of an old tune

I am excited

for a celebration of sorts

and the use of a different type of sword

and when our battle reaches its end

I'll lay down sweaty with you

my dearest friend
