Well, you want all the answers with the little things,
You want to hide your thoughts in shadows-
Paper bags- and,
Riddled schemes.

You want to pet the fire, call the beast: be on edge,
Where all the deepest seams of life burst-
In your dreams- and,
In your bed.

And I want to watch your eyes- wander the ground- when you
Think too hard: To give you every
Permission- and,
Opportunity to break my heart.

I just want to read you, like, the mystery that always
Leaves me with
This dissatisfied hole
Try to fill with a shovel at night.
