he's touching your lips like they're rose petals, callouses on soft skin. he looks like a god in the candle light, all flesh and pomegranate seeds.

antinous ascends from the nile dressed in 
angel wings. his beauty brings hadrian to his knees and the great roman empire crumbles to dust.

lips on lips, a promise. fingers through hair, the mediterranean behind eyelashes and cheekbones. odysseus comes back after 20 years. penelope sighs,

i always knew you'd come home.
