We met beneath the arch of revolution.

The soft foundation sank beneath our feet.

The bike corral led out to the arena.

The hotel lobby sheltered us from heat.



Don’t gather ‘round the dinnertable, darling.

There’s nothing that will satisfy you there.

Come meet me beneath the angel in the parkland

while I attempt to rearrange the muscles in your hair.



We got home just in time to feel the swelter.

The summer storms confused our ancient minds.

The spark gap closed between our fainting faces.

Your dark eyes opened wide and plastered mine.



Don’t run away from me this time, my darling.

I’ve more to offer you than mere regret.

Tear down the stonewashed castles with rebellion,

and populate the cities made of starlight in the air.



Our limbs were dangling coolly off your pool deck.

Our hands collided fifty thousand times.

Remembered fifty thousand times we’d melted.

foreshadowed fifty thousand nights of crime.



Don’t hold me for tradition’s sake, my darling.

Do not destroy your one chance at remorse.

Use love to fight corruption in your homeland.

Use love to light the pathways of our eternal divorce.

Use love.
