Yellow (for nichole)
you are the spadix
of a calla lily. hammock happiness hum
lazy limbs sunday morning. &
of orejas with champurrado.
gush on crush on future possibility.
we spout chisme under dim lights &
little cranes metallic. amarillo spilling
on the bedsheets & from our smiles slow spreading
you are refrigerator magnets,
swirling into prose. & insecure reruns,
the honeyed warmth of slumber
parties after being stuck
in a snowstorm.
sunrise snug under fingernails, from orange
speckled with chili powder. & bad bunny on repeat:
estamos bien, 'tamos bien
te quiero regalar
a million valentine blankets. with corazóncito
softness. so you won’t ever have to crank the heat up. & you always feel yellow.
