12 steps to making love last

reshape your disproportions until you fit the other’s reflection

cleave together until you can’t stand apart without falling

let your dreams fade until they no longer cast shadows on the other

contain yourself into smaller and smaller boxes hidden ever further into dusty corners so no one will trip on them

dissolve your unmet needs until they leave no aftertaste of resentment

clench your jaws until your gums start to bleed so as not to utter words that will cut a life down

drop your y’s so what’s yours becomes ours and somehow no longer worth fighting for

feign weakness to mask lack of shared enthusiasm

pretend interest to be granted reprieve

snuff out desire before the you feel the heat

swallow back your longing until you’re so distended you want no longer

bend to the will of the other until yours is wrung out
