THIN LACE is a spoken-word poem from Ana María Caballero’s MAMMAL about the evolution of intimacy in long-term relationships. Written in Caballero's signature, multi-valent style, it paints an honest portrait of the collision of committed love, exhaustion, and desire.
MAMMAL was the winner of the prestigious 2022 Steel Toe Books Poetry Prize and a semi-finalist for both the Vassar Miller Prize and the Birdy Poetry Prize. It will be published by Steel Toe Books in 2024.
perhaps it stops being about
me loving you
you loving me
us loving us
& more about
embracing a life that ends
watch it end
i bought flimsy pajamas for you
lace for the children’s
but who cares about sex
i just want you to wipe away baby shit
mature love is the best
it makes you smarter
because you have to think
i’ve always preferred smart to happy
our mid-life love makes me happy
