My sweet-breath flower boy-
mushroom tender
thing-bearer;
Flour boy
with shattered saucer eyes,
putting silent somatic smile sparks
on the kisses of my cheekbones.
He cradles
me in my dark iron swaddling,
reminds me that there’s more to life
than being born in Dallas,
and will never, EVER let on
that I pluck my bellybutton hair.

He is
Christ
Prometheus
philanthropist martyr
who will raise his own sails
using the ropes that bind me to this
skin cell teal table.
He is
Spirit sex
Soul touching
licking my wounds for me,
gaining nothing but the sharp,
stigmata stains slashing at his watercolor skin.

My pale-faced white friend
who always bites the hand that
feeds-strokes-rapes
him and now me.
and it’s that delicate tea set
China-fragile hand debt that flitters
Over my retinas when a man says
“Shhh.”
Kind, gentle trash-pollen boy who
knows so much of what it means to
be a man that the negative
connotations of the title
INSULT him.

I am sorry
that he bakes and blossoms,
but if he gave in to the
oven summer sun parch,
I would wilt, as well.
I am not sorry
For the flexi-bone calcium bend
I can see through his shell,
because my boi flies and crushes
in an absinthe finger song;
pen-string-squeeze
like a Tricky Tori Trip-Hop bird,
Storm smiling.

Gratefulness
rises in me like bubbles in Liquid glass-blood,
kiln-killed,
sticky scorched,
and I would rather boil alive
than have skin.
