venn diagram on desire (Holy Tuesday)


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



my hands
clench
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
clench
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
