you’re pistachio
he said
it’s too much
for some people
they only want vanilla
he adored pistachio
more importantly
I did too

being with you
is like having
a searchlight
shining into
my soul he said
some people
don’t want to
be illuminated

I’ve learned
people see
when they look
into my eyes
no need for
me to flip
any switches

I would choke
on my own
existence if I
to be vanilla
is not going
to happen
in this lifetime
