I’m trying to breathe underwater
as if I’ve always known how to, as if
I know what to ask of my teeth and my tongue

I want to take a photo of the feeling of wet grass underfoot.
I want to take a photo of my stomach falling when someone hesitates on the phone.
I want to take a photo of your laugh when it starts to get a little wheeze in it.
I want to take a photo of the pain in my back teeth when ice cubes touch them.
I want to take a photo that will stop misogyny.
I want to take a photo that will disable weaponry.
I want to take a photo that will make everyone breathe deeper in the morning.
I want to take a photo that will give you an orgasm every time you look at it.
I want to take a photo of people having sex without compromising anyone’s privacy.
I want to take a photo of people I love when they’re dead without anyone thinking that’s totally fucked up.
I want to take a photo of people exploding without anyone having to die.
