from Mon Semblable

There’s a world

as ambiguous as a moan,
a pleasure moan
our earnest neighbors

might think a crime.
It’s where we could live.
I’ll say I love you,

which will lead, of course,
to disappointment
but those words unsaid

poison every moment.
I will try to disappoint you
better than anyone ever has.

– Stephen Dunn
