Moonlight – Darshana Suresh

This is a short poem, but captures a moment that is both quiet and playful. I was talking with my fiancée at one point about how something interesting about the Hayley Kiyoko song “Cliff’s Edge” we both enjoyed was that the way the narrator talks about both herself and her lover, it’s hard to interpret or reframe as heterosexual; I feel the same thing here. The legs swinging, the moonlight on the small of the lover’s back—it feels very authentic to me and my experience of love, of finding that joy with another woman.
