The most important part of poetry
is how it makes you travel through time
and place. I have my spacesuit on ready
to touch stars. meet me at the ocean.
you’re so ridiculous, did you see i did the dishes for you
love me now
fill up my glass
oh, how i love you now
the way you come through the door
and kiss space with two grand steps.
telling me how my beauty is so deep
even you have to dig
and that’s why you love me
because every day i give you the shovel.
living and knowing you has been the best part
of my life
how could i have done anything without you?
this is my poetry
how quotes mean nothing
until i whisper them in your ear.
remember when we went to Puerto Plata
and i wore those fuck me boots
and short shorts? remember the party
in the basement with strangers
everyone grabbed our asses
and we laughed and touched each other
in the back seat of the cab?
we keep on chasing wanderlust
in the front seat of sanity
with our seat belts off.
speaking foreign languages spreading love
through sand castles,
it’s the 70’s
and my foot went right into the Tupperware
when the car crashed and our necks snapped.
you know the grammar rules
now try to apply them
to your life.
