Other Off

Wouldn’t you love to unzip
your other off,
like a whisp of smoke,
when no one was looking?

You wonder,
Which parts can you peel off,
Like a mask,
And which parts are permanent.

What is
What is

I’d like to be done with
the ideas you
have about me
and what you
say is my “lifestyle”
but is really my life.

I’d like to believe
you weren’t looking
pale when
my partner
and I kissed
across the table
from you
and your fiancé.

I’d like to know
that we are equals,
and really believe it.
