i'm sitting inside
the room that is now mine
it comes in waves
i want to take care of you somedays
do you want to sit in my room
and listen to music?
i had something to tell you
but i forgot it
will you try not to lie?
ignore the sword between your thighs
the women that you've compromised
ignore the fire in my eyes
do you want to smoke on your roof
and stare at the pavement?
i imagine my body on the ground
am i a good person?
i recall my hands around your throat
in the darkness of our hole
the colors are all muddy now
my angry footprint on your mouth
do you want to sit on a hill
and fall down with me?
we could make more coffee
or just fall back asleep
