Rapture in Heat

from The Cover of Hunter by Liam Betson



Bobby, coming out is scary
and any advice doesn't feel right.
Walking to the door and looking out at the sun
reflecting off a car, sharp and bright;
in the back of your mind you are trying very hard
to recreate something you never even saw
in the first place.
I tried that too.
But did it work for you?

Ecstasy in heat or depression in a ditch—
always hiding the cause of it.
Everything you do is secret,
so you forget what it ever even meant.
And now it’s impossible to separate
the memory from its shape,
what it says it wants
from what it actually wants.
You want to be loved but say that you don’t.


from The Cover of Hunter, released July 22, 2014
