About a Girl

sometimes things just happen to you
what just happens to you?
you know. things.
like poetry, or love, or remembering the time you walked barefoot over cold stone in India on your way to breakfast?
like when you saw that boy and you weren't in love with him any longer. you didn't want to tell him and admit you ever had felt that way.
I want to watch that movie so terribly. it would make everything make sense, the way the dialogue careens and the hand burns.
if you would text me first
if you would only
I just like the way these keys feel, the way the lids close slowly over my eyes and I don't have to fight it
I like the way I like you, you being the thing I want.
the thing that happened to me is meeting you drunk and wanting something out of that
when you don't remember,
what is there to remember?
is anything experienced, lived, felt?
ambulation, laughing in my sleep for you
the black razor of my phone implores me, you're so close.
always at my fingertips, won't you bring your hips to me?
I like your glasses and your hair.
I just like you I hope it's not a problem.
