In this house, while Lana sings
It’s you, it’s you, it’s all for you
he bakes bread for her asking about her day.
In this house, they are not allowed to kiss
or touch: a girlfriend in Spain
with psychic abilities could get quite jealous.
Hints of sexual intimacy are definitely banned
but it’s so hard to resist brushing against her
when walking through those narrow corridors.
Who knew a sofa could be the place where
‘As a species we usually do the wrong thing’?
While watching ‘American Horror Story’,
English grammar and a vast vocabulary
become so overrated when you can
fall asleep on each other’s shoulders.
After many years passed proclaiming her manifesto
about modern genderfluid love, she feels
quite defeated by these squared heterosexual nuisances.
It can be so hard to fight sticky clustered desires
and glances at those broad shoulders in front of Bill
and Susanna from BBC News at 7 in the morning.
