left cheek

If I can seduce you2 with anything,

It’s my Walmart night gown collection.

-

Drove through your2 town

With mumford and songs playing

Windows down

Everything was green- even you2

-

Spotlights blink

like fireflies do

-

This is like that one Halloween:

My sister and I walked home from the bar

And a drunk man slapped my ass so hard

That I had a red handprint

On my left cheek for two days

And when I tell people that story

They always laugh

But to be perfectly honest,

You should be careful when touching

My left ass cheek because I still get real freaked out

for some reason

-

We’re talking one adjective here

-

You2 are overrated

And so are your2 thousands of Instagram followers

-

Only kissed you2 because

I was attracted to the way your2 hands

Fit around the steering wheel

That’s really the only reason

So don’t get too excited

-

The orifices in your face will become sinkholes

One day

I just know it

-

I said: tonight there will be a crescent moon

To the right of Venus and Jupiter

Jupiter has a strong gravitational pull

And Venus is maybe like earth’s twin

I said: the energies of the world are balanced tonight

so spend sometime outside

because feeling the moon move would be good for you2

You2 said: It’s too cold out there

Always been more a “sunlight” kind of girl

But I’m the moon, cratered and ever changing

She grow things, I move the tides

She only sees me when it’s dark out

That’s why we will never work out

-

I had the best damn day in Disney World without you

So forget you1

-

And don’t you ever try

To touch

My left cheek

Again
