These Poems Are For You

These poems are for you
because I love your wry mouth
your driest humor
your homosexual ache
I carry each night you need
something I cannot give
in the driest sense.
You ask me if I married you
would I ache?
no, I reply
because I just need you too much
when you gave me something
I never imagined would work.
That old faggish comfort.
after a dry break-up
I’m glad I wrote this poem,
Aren’t you?
