Bi Love You by Kyrsta Morehouse

There was time when loving

you was criminal. I hate

to say it often still is. Though

where we stand now we commit

no crime, each time we kiss it feels

like treason and I will never stop craving

that taste. Each time you call

me Honey I really hear: We are valid.

Each time I hold your hand

in public we lead the rebellion,

the warmth of your lips caressing

battlecries into the soft of my wrist.

Each time a pickup-truck brands

me a Fucking dyke - patriarchy shooting

from the hiss of his tongue - all I can hear

is your morning voice declare:

My god, you’re beautiful.
