And to think…

And to think
I nearly didn’t go
To that steampunk
Lesbian reenactment
Of the TV show Ghostwatch

And had I not
I never would have met you
My love
With your eyes like
A butterfly’s back
And your hair
Like the legs of a butterfly

And your butterfly
Like the lips of a kiss
That’s gone
Long before
Pipes is discovered to be
A teenage dream
An unfaithful reenactment
Of everything I believed.

Scrawled on your face
Like scratches
On the arms
Of a teenage girl.
