Tight

i am a limpet
in love
 
if i choose you
and
you, foolishly, choose me
i will leap
from the ground
and
wrap my arms
and legs
about you
tightly
tangled
in your hydroponic focus
 
giddy
and scalp bleeding
i promise
to grow a
lethal barnacle
around our love
cutting any
who
try to
crowbar
us
apart

with warmth
and moisture
between us
we grow our own
food
and live
oblivious
 
to
genocide
toxic contamination
and global warming
in our
pearly shell house
