Status: Married
by Jess C Scott

you show me pictures of your fiancé:
tall, broad-shouldered, studying to be a doctor
then you tell me you don’t know what you’re doing
even though he’s super-good, super-nice

so I say:
Hey, lots of women do that
Marry a rich guy who’s successful
I laugh, you laugh
you ask me if I’ll do the same,
I don’t know--because it’s not just men I’m into

then you suddenly sprawl yourself over me and say:
Kiss me again, Bianca
Like ten years ago when we role-played getting married

I reach over, my hands do the talking
as I gently taste your cherry lips
at my touch you are transformed
as if this act is going to be your last
dresses thrown thongs snapping off as you let go
asking me:
Can I stay
I don’t want to go back
I can’t go back

Sure I say of course
gravity’s sinking in
falling for your old best friend
we hold hands together elbows interlocking
my eyes drinking in your luscious curves
your tongue and mouth getting
to know the scent of my skin
we aren’t
"man & wife"
we don’t need to be:

    it’s just you & me.
