because you love me

because you love me
i have fallen
into the habit of
being taken
in, there
are places that
suspicion will
no longer go

there is always
enough gasoline
in the tank, even
when returning
each time is a
losing habit

our lives, we swap
in and out
the things that

shoved, the act of
breathing forced
down into our lungs.

one breath and
piece it together

if they’re not
shaving you,
they’re most
likely shaving
someone else

lips, locking in
the mileage of
