May 3, 2017

Soft strings of colored lights,
photos on the wall;
my jeans are on the couch
softly plays that song

leaning into the back
twisting a strand of hair,
looking at photographs
iron and wine still plays

nothing, a lot, is you
on the couch next to me;
your music playing still
your hands are white and cold

no, i'm not mad
i'm just glad to be here
listening to your music
watching the plastic flame jump
looking at the photos
looking at your hands

and i'm glad my pulse is skipping
blood tripping through my veins

it's nice,
watching my friends,
the papered-over tables
year escaping again

no, i'm not mad
i'm just glad that you're here
on the couch next to me
whatever you are
however long you'll stay

flightless bird...
american mouth
