POETRY / Lines Composed for my Unrequited Crush / Hannah Cohen / Writer of the Month

How you are water
droplets before touching
ground. 

The red distance
of radio towers above us.
My days a rat king.
The ocean without sleep. 

Well, this is how I want you:
an atlas of nations losing names.
Hands unholding.
