In Love with Two Women

Sun and moon

I wake up, and everything is out of order.
My hair looks uncombed for a week
My eyes have scab.

I look out like an amphibian caught between
Water and land. I’m Aquaman
On that drawbridge going both ways
And I’m at the dead center, looking
At both directions.

The dilemma of loving two women
Equally. And love, whoever
Said, it was pure, uncorrupt and holy,
Didn’t know my obsession with two flesh.

And like the day belongs to the sun and moon,
I entangle my flesh to two bodies and to time
Until the day is finally over,

And my skin is filled with Vitamin D
And I’m feeling like a prize lunatic.
