I called you ‘deadly’. You called me ‘soft’, ‘savory’, ‘strained’, ‘scissors’, ‘save’ in savior, more to survive. I remembered him freeze, frizz, fuss in suffused. Fuck, ‘film’. I knew he flew. I’ve known that you’re deadly.

I swam across, out of the arm of one love. I sway, stay, swollen, smothered. The water was warm, sludgy, serene, sincere and intense. I fail, fast, feel, favor, fenced, first aid, flow in overflowing, found and finish. I didn’t know you’re deadly, decorated, designed, declaredly, medly, raison d’etre.

Decided. I called you, devotedly.
