GRAY PIGEON

 

together

early morning

eating cereal mix

in the park by the empty fountain

you pass me a peanut

then a cashew,

then another peanut.

and i realize

that i like the way your voice sounds

through 4 M&Ms.

you explain the plot of a movie

while i wipe crumbs off my leggings

and watch a bug crawl to the center of your star of David tattoo.

i don’t think anyone released an album this year

that is better than listening to

hungover people

walk home in light rain.

 


 

LINT

 

if you don’t want to that’s fine

but can you come back

from Connecticut on Tuesday instead of Thursday?

when you get here

let’s press our tongues

against the window of Jamba Juice

at around 4pm when it’s always really crowded

and then we can stand

in front the icon of the inexhaustible cup

for like,

5 or 6 minutes,

while we wait for our strawberry pop tarts to be done.

i have a lot to tell you.

in the time you’ve been gone

i’ve learned from sci-fi films

that dying from getting sucked out of a space station

is oddly calming.

it is quiet

like when you don’t realize

that the volume on your phone is turned off.

it is also dark

like everything else that is dark

 


 

BANANA BOX

 

if we are going to the club tonight

i only want to dance to

“Lean Back”

by Fat Joe

because it’s a very non-stressful song

to dance to.
