resistance

i love our soft forms of resistance

quick kisses in the hotel hallway

laughing together while getting eaten by mosquitoes

touching our toes together in a hot tub

it’s a hot summer full of anger and fear

i’m swimming in it but

you’re my lighthouse

 

when we aren’t afraid

because no one can find us

we’re funny and quiet and sexy and dreaming

all at once

we can imagine a future together

one that we both want

one where we both thrive

one where we swim into a more gentle sea

and make it to shore
