Longing

  • The body does not let himself cry.
  • He wants to kiss him all the time.
  • He'd feel that'd be queer...
  • Maybe because it was.
  • It would feel especially good to remove his clothes.
  • He pulled his shirt, his belt, his pants.
  • He touched his cheek.
  • Whose idea was it, this body of his?
  • It wouldn't matter.
  • The boy does not love him.
  • He'd had that feeling before. This wasn't about him.
  • Of course the boy had been crying.
