thongs & sand

some days I wake
up hot & he
regrets he’s not w/me

& I turn &

drive & I won’t
tell you about my
drives for then I
would have to show
you


sigh

conversations
w/you

must include
thoughts of picnics
& poems

all the flowing
rivers
unleashed

muffins/strawberries

the truth is
she adds more cinnamon
than called for

& cloves in an outrageous amount
//yes//

the truth is
she lies to

the lake
lies awake

//asleep//

the truth is
she knows

how much she really
adds & how to

make sound
ride the top
