Jun-Jun and Quisty Get a Room

After  Twenty-One Love Poems [Poem II] by Adrienne Rich

Jun-Jun: “You’ve kissed my hair

to wake me.”

Quisty:                           “Dream

no more. I’m here.”


JJ:             “Did you just scream

from love or fear?”


Q:               “Didn’t mean to scare

you when I came.”


JJ:             “One hot tamale!

It’s no great shame,

your grand finale.”


Q:             “You were a poem

in my chasm.

Rhythm and flair.”
