LOWER LOVER

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

November 20th, The Tomato-coloured Couch 4:45pm

My Husband says I am at My Descriptive Best

writing about what’s around Me

but tonight I need to write what’s inside

I am talking to My Inner Him

incubated as an alien but He is from Me

The Persona of My Own Making

in My Gut

He is The Me I am in love with

fixed within My Lover — I wrote Lover!
