isn't this what you were looking for?


yesterday we cooked burgers and hot dogs
drank belgian beer
spoke of a need for better things

because saying it that way feels more apt.

when you walked me to the street that morning
I told you our couch was longer and more supportive to sleep on
like a pep talk
or a space mattress.

and when you looked at me it was like it was even okay to say this
and the walk home was the best walk ever
and I looked at everything
and planned a complete takeover that was swift and painless
in the span of forty five minutes
and five gallons of sweat.

when I got home it became home and I built a bed
and thought about what it was like when we built our own houses
and structure
and about revolutions
and all the things that happen when our eyes are closed.
