Pick up my love
like a penny from the dust –

dust off my cold dreams
layered in sand.
Pick off the
old gum,

warm me in your hand.
Run me through
the washer in your
favorite pair of jeans

because, like always,
you forgot how to
not forget me.
Sew up your pocket

where I fell through
the ripped seams.
Pick my love up
like a penny –

dust off my cold dreams.
