I dream that we are swimming
in a lake of corpses and
all you want to do is
take them home and
pretend their lips aren’t blue.

You want to dance and kiss me hungry,
but the bodies are still there,
dressed in your Sunday best,
uneaten apples rotting before them.

Why are we always trying
to breathe life into dead things?
Why does nothing stay buried?
It’s noon, and ghosts are only
haunting us because we let them,
because we made a place for them here,
in our home, in our heavy hearts.

We are pumping electricity into our veins
and calling it light,
calling it the sun,
calling it God.

You are kissing me hollow,
and we call it love;
we pretend that the bodies
are no longer there,
that the voices
in our heads
are our own.
