A Metaphor For Platonic Love...

between Sam and
Rey is a dog named Jude
a greyhound

they cannot leave the house
together
or else the dog will die inside
the bathroom

in bed
Jude lies between them
it is the beast
that separates them
for a while

it is this beast
that has given them
temporary
pleasure

no, do not misinterpret
this story
for a bestial ecstasy
it is not in their minds
neither in their acts

if one has to leave
then one must stay
come winter
come spring
