Love & Rum

You drink cheap rum

from the bottle

but distilled

in a jar

suspended in ethereum

a love

I feel for our invisible children

their unisex names.


You touch my hands

as I shrink

into your arms

fading

into my self

previously unknown

unfamiliar

with all the broken men

traversing your soul.


You light a match

igniting me whole

the more water

I pour

the colder I grow

while the pictures

on the nightstand

grow older still.
