Queer Love Poetry Day #8: two little ghosts by Indigo

two little ghosts

you say
you’ll love me
until they throw
dirt on my face

that after you’re gone
your ghost will go on loving me

sneak up behind me in the kitchen
spook the cats
yell “boo” at my mis-matched outfits

I laugh
but I can’t see myself without you

I only see us at 90
with bags on both shoulders
tugging on the collars of our elderly cats
cackling like school girls

I only see us
two little ghosts
thumb wrestling in the dark
“ghost fucking” on our second honeymoon
scaring life into the living;
still shaking bones with our laughter

you say
there aren’t enough words
to say ‘I love you’

but if you plan
to love me into ghost-hood
there’s no need for more words
