i don't know about you, but
i couldn't care less about sweating at night
in archaic houses with a waterbug problem.
we don't need air conditioning, just watch,
we'll show every one of them
and i know that it really doesn't matter
that we sit on porches during summer
watching mars, suspended, and giving it
smokey marlboro rings.
i'm existing where i first existed,
tracing my roots like they were
the curve of your back, my palm
pressing down at all the right spots.
we drove by her house, and
none of this means anything,
but it's still nice to think about.
