~

if a solar eclipse can

swallow the sun, will

there be less darkness?

~

will we feel the speed

of gravity stop everything –

or will we carry on

frozen lifeless

shouting racial slurs?

~

i hope they find us staring

deeply at each other

after sex

or dancing slow –

~

i want to be a sculpture

of a swan or angel

~

anything but human.
