because the moon wasn’t showing
that’s why in the end i kissed you on the belly
of the hill.
because you gave me redemption, carefully
folded to fit between dry citadel stones,
or vegetables, or sweaty copper faces
on a harbor, watching moored ships sink,
that’s why i pressed your body
into something resembling an ocean.
because i understand loneliness
to be a measure of the distance
from yourself, and madness
just sanity with teleconferencing,
that’s why i let you pull me, ear by ear,
toward a prior dream.
q: If you were really hungry, really tired and super gross which would you do first nap, eat or shower?
a: eat then shower then nap
