“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.
