Before I Come Out

Before I come out:

I will clean up this closet,
adorn its ceiling with fairy lights
so that I can see you better,
place vanilla scented candles
on the four corners surrounding me
so that I can smell you better,
and dedicate a humble alter
in the name of Herim
who have made it
utterly impossible for me
not to fall in this dizzying clarity
that is called
love.
