2.16

Act I

Considered plucking the rose from

my chest and littering the sidewalk

with it;

Other women brought

bouquets so I no longer feared

I’d be singled out at the gate

 

Voorpret intensifies

 

When the sun was no longer

suspended in the sky:

women hopped fences and

a man asked for extra tickets

while my head shook like

a blurry photo,

whips back and forth

in the cold

Wind a nemesis I faced for you

 

Act II

After circling around the sun

together four times, I finally

see you face to face

This moment is

eternally ours,

only

 

Act III

Hell’s Kitchen brings tears

Your octave continued to spill

over my ear

Now I wander around like a

wispy dream,

I close my eyes and

see the memories they’ll

never know
