Elana Lev Friedland

trans Love Song

I was born endemic//to your bedroom//let this tune see us through the next super
blue blood moon//your bag of dicks//my stubborn insistence
on running analytics//you, milk//to my cereal//this sogginess a sensation so unfamiliar
and so saccharine//I want you//to break//the Internet no longer
a substitute//to you. May this be my always//ars poetica: my arse is yours. Always.
