Hummingbird/Skinny Jeans

A Poem

 

he is a hummingbird

he pollinates your mind and

he drinks deep, deep

he embodies what you want

the world to be, be

he flickers and flutters

but he never stutters

he looks better than your girlfriend in skinny jeans

 

he wears his gender like his t-shirts, inside out

he’s the anarchist your mama never talked about

he’s got the prettiest eyes you’ve ever seen

and he looks better than your girlfriend in skinny jeans

 

he cannot be triggered

he’s the gun, gun

like winter’s light, he cannot be

outrun, run

animated, caffeinated

sitting still is overrated

he cannot be pinned down, he has to

run, run

 

he wears his gender like his t-shirts, inside out

he’s the anarchist your mama never talked about

he’s got the prettiest eyes you’ve ever seen

and he looks better than your girlfriend in skinny jeans

 

his words like a whip, he’s ready, he’s quick

he runs out of air as his convictions let slip

his thighs don’t touch

he don’t smile enough

just the idea of him makes your heart skip, skip…

 

from the second he meets you

he has won, won

he crushes your heart under his

thumb, thumb

his words pave yellow brick roads, he

unravels you slowly

you’ll always be convinced that he’s the one, one, one
