Eyes delicate death
Blue, a shield -- colored contacts
Match this teal screened life
Where he'll never be alone,
So far as there's a

DSL connection.
Yes: Memory can
Be murder. I recognize
That Affected tone
On his end of the "Sidekick."

A timbre used nine
Months ago with me when the
Boyfriend not yet mine
Slithered for privacy from
His family: though

Here, in Los Angeles, this
Marvelous de-live-
Error of dreams, as the day
Fades, so do I, things
Said. He relocates a con-

Versation from our
Cottage, mandible flapping
Like a trap door as
He latches ours behind. So

The social contract: 1, 2
& 3 as I shift
Without moving an inch, towards
Epilogue.  His skin
The color of bleached skulls,

My heart is a closed
Casket funeral -- I'm used
Already to what
"[I'll] get used to." My screen-
Saver's's on
