LP No. 31 Pen

Talisman
against
fears of
obscurity eternal.

I write of love,
so you will remember
me
long after
the kisses disappear.

I write of beauty,
so you
will praise me
after my bones
sludge into
mildewed putrescence.

I write
to sketch
the corners of my soul.

I write
because you
will never see
what I see.

you will never love
like I love
so
I am writing
for me.
