“Tell me how all this, and love too, will ruin us.
These, our bodies, possessed by light.
Tell me we’ll never get used to it.”
― Richard Siken, Crush
Don’t give our love a name
for naming is to separate
If we hadn’t named God ‘God’
we would have known him* better
If I hadn’t labeled your words
as my salvation
I would have probably lived longer.
*use your pronouns
