after we had Taco Bell breakfast for the first time
you told me:
“i felt way more emotionally close with Dennis Rodman after i listened to his Hall of Fame speech”
and that is just one part of the reason
that you are like staring into an iPhone.
that it is part of the minimum of space between us
when i am looking at a bird
and you are thinking about Bruce Springsteen
and being 9 years old.
find me in my room
wearing your flower print leggings
find me spitting sunflower seeds
into a textbook
find me when you give up looking for your keys
lie down in bed
between the Winnie the Pooh doll
and the talking Cheburashka doll
look at the glow-in-the-dark skulls
that you put on my ceiling.
think about the way your own skull glows in the dark.
