Hello, Everything

lose me around
the corners of your words

i’ve been here too long
to remain
in the shape
of a skeleton straightjacket

there’s a film that shows
every color known on earth
but we can only see
646,275 of them

there’s a reason you came back from the woods and gave me that handshake but i can’t remember and really it wouldn’t change a thing

the way you look
at me suck me
through a straw
in a watermelon nighttime
record player, yep

feel this
now this
would you do it again?
