atomic fireball kisses, with the candy
pressed between our teeth.
they said we needed fire, we merely grinned.

all the fire is here, in my arms, in yours,
tangled between us, merely a centimeter of
separation.

oh darling love, we burn like fiery faeries
gracing the sky with their luminescent light.
do you think they feel a chill, are we meant to

warm their hearts?
are we destined to please them,
or ourselves?

do we require fire, because they require the cold?

-yes, i think we do. they do.
