"You know what it feels like when all your teeth are falling out really slowly and you don't realize and then you notice that, well, they're really far apart. And then one day... you don't have any teeth anymore." - Where the Wild Things Are

Mary, married,
sold the moon for a home,
the banker needs the money, his home, is cold

a new car, to some drafty house,
the furnace burns inside the wife's blouse,
my beautiful wife,

my tears for your dreams,
my dreams for your children,
a couple glasses, for what we have

a garden,

and our souls,

you're beautiful, the way you hold yourself so modest,
you burn the snow,
my education for our furnace,

it's not called compromise.

It's called sacrifice.
