if i see you tonight
is a sentiment that doesn’t really go anywhere.
tonight the sky was pink and yellow
and then suddenly it wasn’t.
the next time i see you i will be a towering figure
the next time i see you there will be a fire
there have been two in the past ten days so this is not too fantastic
there will be lights on poles and strung like flags.
there will be a biting wind
that will require a sweatshirt.
when i pee i feel emptied and i feel this is a good thing.
i want to ride my bicycle around the block thirty times
and get progressively faster each time.
