we were eating apricots

Eli Dunham

on your front porch in june,

we talked about work & how bad i was at sex.

it’s been a few years since i last tried it, not sure

but i really think i don’t know how to be naked in front of a man. to be some ornamental sleeve,

i guess it’s warm in there. the juice of the apricot

trickled down my throat.
