open yr heart to me

we went out to the intersection

and walked until the sidewalk turned dark

i looked up and saw that the cheap, plastic, ne0-modern streetlights had been smashed to bits

plunging the alley into total darkness.

this must be the place, i said, as i looked in to try and see if anyone was there.

headlights passed overhead

playing patterns on the overpass

like tiny bits of film

it's time, i said

come rain or shine

solice or swollen lips

cut to us making love

that's how i called it in the dream

you were on top of me and raining kisses on my cheeks

"whatever it was you said,"

you said.

and i was about to tell you i didn't understand

but i woke up instead.
