dim

by eloisehendy

it is hard to say
what
is going on
what
you mean, what
is happening

everything is in flux
again

I’m dreaming of boys
with no faces
with skin like
yours
(with skin like
safety)
but a different voice
each time
who are they, these
boys
who will they
be
how will I know them, if
they have
no faces

(i will wink at them)

your face
(after it turned
away)
has faded

not for lack
of trying

just
for lack

I wonder what you are dreaming of
I hope your dreams are sweet

I hope the girls
you dream of
only
wear
my face

(selfishness
unfairness
cruelty
are not the opposite of
love)
