game night by Catie Wiley

every thursday night is game night,

but we call it gayme night,

feeling proud of our rainbow tinged hearts

we giggle, play cards,

and I always lose

(but it never

feels like a loss).

every thursday night is game night:

I buy us boba tea,

he brings the colorful cake,

ze makes sure everyone hydrates.

every thursday night is game night

like a reclaimed slumber party

where gossiping about crushes

leads to bonding

not bullies.

every thursday night,

we crawl into cocoon king bed,

complain about triple word score,

cuddle in a cozy pile,

and build a home

we’ve never had before.
