Meanwhile, A Haunting – Leon

i sometimes look with longing for your death
i could stand shoulder to shoulder 
in the expected liturgy of grief 
i could visit your grave in autumn 
to bring you flowers, to tell myself 
the single, easy story of your life 
the truth is a cold and narrow bed
i’d rather lie with you among the fading leaves


Leon is a geeky queer feminist androgyne. They write speculative fiction centering queer characters. You can find them on Twitter @other_echoes, where they talk about gender, sexuality, fundamentalism, and Wonder Woman boxer briefs.
