"What if the person in the puddle is real, and you're just a reflection?" -Calvin & Hobbes

We said “Chicago”
And let it fall from our lips
Like mounting clandestine smoke
A secret to disguise
That we wanted forever
Strung between our hands
Laced amid our fingers
And lingering in our hair
We wanted forever
To play cards
To give love letters
To tuck away in blanket havens
And scoop 1, 2, 3 sugars

We said “Goodbye”
And it hangs on our lips
Clings to the spout
Like distinct and fading shades of lipstick
No mystery at all
That we still want forever
Traced down our spines
Stuck between our teeth
And moistening in the corners of our eyes
We just want forever
To read our future in this deck of cards
To send love letters
To remember the smell of your quilted blanket
And to always think of you when I scoop 1, 2, 3 sugars

I pulled a card today
Eight of Diamonds
Change will come
