sex & adolescence

we are children in the dark,


only able to see by the light


of the reflections of our skin in the moonlight.


white like the stars,


white like satin or like




the drink our parents told us would


make us stronger,


but baby,


we are strong enough on our own.


strong enough to pretend to know what we are doing


in the dark,






the dark, consuming


each other


and calling it love.
