Super Smash Lovers


I’ve dreamt in video game

maps, I’ve thought a screen

a portal to another person’s

mind. Sometimes it becomes

so clear that I have

always loved the way I’ve

loved; in his basement,

when he changed the melee

time to unlimited, I believed

there’d be no end

to his arm & my arm &

the couch, to him throwing

barrels of fire at my head.

Please, keep me here. Even

when I walk off edge after

edge, I’d rather reappear again

above you.
