Dear entwining, dear edging, dear escape velocity,
Yr body like a blizzard & I’m wrapped into you rn
co-presence the gift w/o bounds
U my potentiality always in veer, Jennifer Tamayo
always rounding the corner.
Dear perigee, dear perpendicular, dear permeation,
Tonight knows no apology,
is all discourse & shenanigans.
Darling, I want to live in yr parentheses
bottomless brunch verse pwrbttm weeknights.
Dear tannins, dear transcience, dear titillation,
I press my body into an envelope & I’m sending
tongues, consonants, permutable possibilities.
Say yes or say yassssssss (a syllable sashays!)
say false starts, say hold
On, then turn around, jump into
my arms & stay.
