because the bed got so empty tonight
empty like a clean bowl
nice set of China, we took it out
to use whenever we wanted because
fuck special occasions, it’s an occasion to be alive
and in love
and to miss your laugh.
I painted blue lines on my body
and you told me how your veins once collapsed
I once drank so little water I turned into a stone ridge
and got Scarlet fever.
Same rings around Saturn and this dishware.
Same hole I’m boring into the floor I pace
because I can’t sleep on a red eye.
The sheets are made of glass.
Curation and preservation of where you last saw me.
Arrange your art so it’s beautiful to the eye.
I have two couches in this living room,
one for me and one for you.
