venn diagram on desire (Holy Tuesday)

this is the bed:
burgundy sheets,
burnt orange pillows
heavy smoke
patchouli and cedar
and warmth

my hands
silk on skin
skin on skin

and i shake

press fingertips, here
arch back like so

lust comes in cliches
needs and waves
burning like so

the ache
and yearn

sighs on whimpers

this is the corner:
the cold floor
the small spot
between the wall
the sofa
the coffee table

my hands
comfort in the fistful
of my own shirt

and i shake

press my face to the cold
flat surface of the wall

comfort seems in small things
the physical
fending off hard

the ache of my chest
the pit in my stomach

tears and tears
