Cookie-Cutter Dagos

Anthony Cristina_Cookie Cutter Dagos

    lie with me forever   Rest your life on mine    Align our limbs to cast in sand      The desert’s silent for my ashes I don’t call it peace     but compromise      fighting ancient seas and picturesque     we’re beyond     People passing over and under      never bother us   Chain-link floors, neon paint, foreplay pointed to the sun    Colonies form our histories           dangling from a cigarette     When you speak I don’t understand    so I watch our life      on mute     Holding hands at Coney Island, Trapani, and home        wearing too many faces, I take my dance with you                 Others say you’re mute               I wanted to know your voice
