lovable creepy


I’ll take you home
if you don’t leave me
at the front door
You know that
I could use somebody
And in the absence
of butterflies
I’ll take you—
you hilarious pervert
We can talk about nipples
and more

And when you write
your name
on my thigh
with your tongue
I will be thinking,
mainly guessing
if the saliva trail
you’re making
is in cursive or in print



Leah Iannone was born and raised in Southern New Jersey. Despite popular belief, she does not enjoy long walks on the beach, but rather shorter bouts of skipping. She moved to New York in 2003 and received both her BA and MFA in Creative Writing from the New School, where she is now a full time employee in their Writing Program. Iannone lives in Park Slope, Brooklyn and is very happy there despite trying her hardest to hate it because it’s a borough. Her work has appeared in 12th Street Literary Journal, Newsweek online, The Best American Poetry blog, and Alimentum.
