if i were to give myself a nickname





if i were to give myself a nickname
in another gender
and send you flower and note
i'd have to speak
of your manly chest and cut marble jaw
and you'd have to think of me as her
but not quite so
or else
you'd be you and i -
your lesbian lover
i suppose;
in the confusion
my tongue might slip
and slide over
anatomy
which is not yours nor mine
and not entirely hers.





if i were to give myself a nickname
