but i know those thoughts
by name, and the ways they
might know mine. waiting for
the time for our final sunset

come sunrise we will be dancing
at the shores of Lake Unknown
breathing incantations
unlocked in our mouths

i o u lovenote letterbombs
dear john's blood in the
creases of my palms. come
morning we will find
a way to be calm

and to you the smiling
spy who takes note on
how i love, a smile in
ink is better than one
sketched in pencil
