Paradise

by Hyacinth Blue

Nobody told me how to navigate this kind of love.

We will be explorers, pioneers in a wild frontier

We can stake our claim—

everything new and nervous and blushing

Something out of the books I’ve read.

How could it be any different when it’s love?

Only—we wouldn’t be exchanging rings in front of an altar

But solemn vows we would whisper to each other,

within the walls of our paradise.
