In the dream, he tells me he doesn’t need a condom

In the dream, he tells me
he doesn’t need a condom
because

he has his book. In the dream, we’ve both
read it. Condoms are a manifestation
of Capitalism. A Bad Thing. Probably

made by Monsanto. We don’t
need them. We can use our minds
to divert the sperm. In the dream

I know it works, if done
correctly, wholeheartedly,
together. We have to trust.

I can’t.
I can’t.
I can’t. Yet

in the dream, we don’t
have a condom
to our name.

‘Poems for the Revolution of Love’ zine cover
 

outside the window II

At 38,000 feet
Felicity’s plump
jellybean
pink lips
glisten.
Her skin is
stroke-me-smooth
cream’n’pale,
punctured once
beneath her
bottom lip.
Grey wolf eyes
stare into mine.
Can I help you with anything?
Outside the window
the sky is
slapbang
in-your-face
blue.
Clouds
dazzle whiter
than
washing-powder
advertisments.
February ends.
One of us
is in trouble.
I tell it
the only way
I know.
Face autumn with the
legions of love
at your shoulder.
