Sugar, we’re going down swinging.

Oftentimes, I feel I am

living my life

in 3rd person.

I float above myself,

watching how I interact,

gauging how I am perceived, adapting


But there are moments

that belong

just to me—my eyes closed

on a dance floor,

surrounded by bodies,

my partner’s warm

lips on my cheek,



three times in succession.

I close my eyes and smile

every time.

I hope I always do.
