An Ace Desire by Constance Bougie

In which I do not love,

Do not want him close—

But think it would be nice,

To touch his lips—

Reach out with

Two fingers and

Push at his pink,

Trying to feel for intimacy

In which I do not love,

Do not want him

For a prolonged time,

But think it could be good—

To feel his lips—

Reaching out in

Asexual curiosity,

Thinking maybe,

Thinking maybe
