so many layers in,

things you love

things you love
and things you love
to hate are not so
different. years
have a way of
both sharpening
and dulling the
experience

red velvet cake!,
you know that
i mean thank you,

is all at once
new
and wasted,
and spending
a night entangled
is just another
conversation
we ought to be having

reading between
the lines, under
God, there are worlds
of pagan wonder
erased, written over,
sandwiched, shelved,
waiting for a world
to take the challenge
