Heath Corlew's 'Love & Unemployment'

Love & Unemployment

I want to be so
intertwined
with you
that our limbs wrap about one another
⎯and spread⎯defiantly,
like kudzu.

Consuming and
smothering
all those perfectly practical
reasons
that keep you⎯ separate⎯
from me.

Like…

the atlantic ocean, your boyfriend, my unemployment⎯yours, our drinking, the way my teeth scrape the spoon, suicide..

Ah, fuck it.

Just⎯all of them.
