Trigger Warning

cast off your cloak
show me your scars
i’ll show you mine

and we’ll trade war stories
about our misadventures
in the wilderness of desire

if nothing else it will be entertaining
i promise not to laugh or lecture
and you must promise too

we will be fools together
without pretense or mockery

and when the blueblack night is done
and the harsh eye of daylight opens wide
we will become amnesiacs again
