100 Words to the Oddities of YouLorna Dee Cervantes
I love all the oddities of you, the oddball you with your odd normality, oddest you as the animal you can kill with all finality. You're the oddest love I've begun to love: oddly fine and refined as a cat, cat-licking you, that platinum tongue, that ravishing you, slow in your Piscean fun (those fingers!), the magic in your hands to soothe, to hold, warm as a cub in Arctic heat. I hold you close, keep you close inside, sheltering this rara avis I seek, this skittish roan; this dappled mare is aware, and grown, accustomed as yours to own.
