believe it themselves

even believe it themselves

they will say out loud that they love you

may even

believe it themselves

yet when you point out the gap

between theory & practice

the real feelings emerge

& all it was

I pointed out their controlling

the way they arranged everything

to suit themselves

not us their guests

when we stayed in their home

on one of the islands in the sun

please give us a little privacy

leave our shit alone

maybe not rearrange us

do our washing hang it on the line?

if you make the bed like in hotels

can I have that mint on the pillow

please?

I ended up wearing her man’s drawers

they’re black she said just the same

oh no I noticed right away I said

mine are baggier in the front

heavier balls you see

don’t you know?
