Trade?-markers, pen, paper-2017-Joshua Escobar

everybody in general
by Joshua Escobar

let’s kiss
Frank as in Frankenstein

let’s kiss
people in cages

let’s kiss
nebulae double-crossed

let’s kiss
straight people mauling whatever they love

let’s kiss
the sexuality of other cities

let’s kiss
unused doctrines & volumes of knowledge

let’s kiss
lovers playing up the doom

let’s kiss
feathers vs. chasm

let’s kiss
chasm vs. feathers

let’s kiss
Saint Francisco of the Latin Exes

let’s kiss
agony to death

let’s kiss
R.A.’s BOMBNESS

let’s kiss
a baby queer’s hoe streak

let’s kiss
another sexy guy’s disinterest

let’s kiss
the fruity aftertaste of Lucifer’s skull & bones soup

let’s kiss
youth drilled anew

even as it’s impossible to see each other
let’s kiss
