Verse: Tag

We will start
at Oxford
and if no one
recognizes us
we can say
we're incognito

If they should
call our names
we can pretend
we are incommunicado

If they should
notice us
we can cover
our faces
like celebrities
or scatter
like fugitives
agreeing to meet
someplace later

If they should
approach us
we will not
and if they
lay hands on us
we will not
go under

For if they
should kiss us
with their
grotesque mouths
with lips that
are moist
and swollen
with want
we will surrender
in an interminable
instant of sighs
