Your Jokes Slide Inside
Pretend it’s two years ago and we’ll go through this once more. You had apple-y cheeks and you were so funny I melted. When you made fun of me I wanted you. When you wanted me I had sex with other people. Pretend it’s two years ago. I got this.
I’m taking stock and so far you’ve told me I look like:
An extra on Modern Family
Lana Del Rey
Pretend our chemistry is some electrical work and devote yourself. Do you hear how deep I breathe when I get your texts? You’re so funny your jokes slide inside me and I giggle and bubble and breathe and I burst. Did you hear how dirty that “lol” was?
Once you dreamt I was stranded on an island with hungry cannibals. When I called you, you told me to leave the island. But I refused so you had to come get me. “I don’t know why you were so hell-bent on staying”. When you came to get me I still refused to leave. I refused and refused until you were chased by cannibals.
I read in a dream dictionary that cannibalism symbolizes forbidden desire.
When I asked you to marry me I was serious. I’d like to be your bride. I’ll probably buy a flower crown from Stone Fox Bridal and we’ll get you orange cords and we'll dress from the 70's. Pretend I didn’t move to this coast and pretend you aren’t planning your life with her and plan your life with me.
