how do lepers love?
I am Ticklish
ticklish to your touch,
Then, my love, am I your leper?
please let me be yours
let our skins meet if they do
Diseased as lepers in a grateful community
of touching, committed lovers who have no no boundaries, lovers of flesh
if not, then we are no longer able to imagine a touch, or feel a love
one touch, of love no
longer exists, no longer is practical, if, if my touch tickles
