The radical and outspoken Staceyann Chin certainly has a way with words….

Fuck Like We Did (a poem for the jaded)

I want to fuck

the way we did when we believed

we were invincible

when we thought ourselves unbreakable

when we knew nothing of hearts shattering

or bones fracturing under the weight of unrealized dreams


I want to promise the impossible/again

I want to unlearn this hesitation

that colors my steps/measured

slow/trudge that I am now


I want the urge

to move erratic/irrational

fall helplessly in lust with someone

who was promised to someone else
