Spit Bubble Rainbow

by Dominic Gualco

we are birds before a hurricane
when the red sun is a god and i am something small
and beautiful in this strange moment
i touch your hair and everything is singular
how can you feel sad when there are so many
california avocados for us to eat
beneath the streetlights i want you to freestyle
in the shower every monday starting now
and sometimes throw your shampoo bottle
against the wall and say motherfucker
cause your mouth wants to remember
the shape it makes and that shape is a flatbed truck
but quit pretending like your heart is a broken down vw bus
because it isn’t
it’s an organ strong enough to choke you when you sleep
through the first planet of the apes movie
and how’d you even do that
there’s another universe to investigate there
and in the space between your knucklebones
and man
i fucking love it
