Naked//2:27 AM
Maya Gabby

i curl around your rough bones, flesh
a night of pink wine & henny shots
tears fall on bare, brown ribs
please, don’t rub your eyes so hard

shaking as skin on skin fades
her hands are not his hands
warmth radiates out, safe
the soft promise of her shape

cold air blows steady, white noise
i smile, hey baby i’m here
lips meet, invite cautious tongues
two cupid’s bows press hard

my head spins, she sees me
even now, in too-sharp pieces
we drift into painless sleep
no man can touch us, yes

survivors make a home of hips
never have i known such peace
