better in the dark

you are disney eyes
twin hummingbirds synchronized
swimming left to right
and back again

I am crisscross applesauce
tube socks and underwear
on a velveteen chair the color
of a dehydrated houseplant

we are buttery candlelight
a spotlight filtered with antique lace
the room explained in sequins
arranged by Pollack and Joyce

“go to sleep”

“you look creepy”

“ok ok”

we are one thing
baby hummingbird heart
drums a Las Vegas night club beat
into the curve that my stomach makes
when I exhale
that’s us
a wild combination
love is better
in the
