Thieves In Love by Kyle Hemmings

In bed, they never take off their masks,
careful not to leave fingerprints
over each other’s body parts.
They are two jewel thieves
pulling off the heist of the other,
red ruby lodged in the belly button,
diamonds stashed in the throat,
making them speechless from heights,
the fear of falling through stained glass.
When the police arrive at their villa,
one thief will swallow the other,
will sacrifice no clarity, only glittering eyes.
