Nonbinary Love Story
You vaulted me up through the window
& we hoped the neighbors wouldn’t freak
& maybe this is not the nonbinary love story
that strangers on the internet want to hear
but it’s the one I’m telling: we both tie our hair
on top of our heads to put our tongues
between each other’s legs & we both drive.
You cook dinner & the bills are in my name.
We cannot keep the dishes or the litter box
on schedule but I wake up every morning
cradling your body in my arms. That’s enough.
This love is rings & babies. This love is acid
dropped in the backyard, fractal magic,
it’s the color of your eyes or the Christmas tree
that’s taller than last year’s. It might not look like much
but I am gay & sad & fuck
come here, I love you.
