tamil love is revolutionary because sinhalese people continue our genocide thru stealing tamil women's wombs and annihilating tamil procreation
tamil love is revolutionary because of social constructs that convince tamil people that tamil people aren't desirable
tamil love is revolutionary because part of the tragedy of diasporic communities is to disperse so that we can't find one another
men who can make paal tea, have a little more of my heart. their fumes never match the kettle's. and their skin is non resided, aside from melanin and my tangled limbs. painted with my tears and sunscreen, ash always absent.
i will always remember you as the boy who helped me live. all while on a red futon.
put your fingers in my mouth and let me touch everything you've touched.
so that i know everything you've known
and drowned in your redemption; your love.
most of which sits at the bottom of oceans
and the rest in your mother's eyes.
