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,"
and i was about to tell you i didn't understand
but i woke up instead.
