Let's make a fort in the hilly covers and bury our faces in marshmallow pillows. Let's shine lights like fireflies and make shadow puppets in the violet shade. Let's feed each other cherries-- I will take the pits for you, nestle them in the palm of my hand like a seedling. Each kiss I breathe on your stomach will be a chalk line, a minty sigh, a starfish.
"Please leave your taste on my tongue
Paperweight on my back
Cover me like a blanket
Mess up my bed with me
Kick off the covers, I'm waiting
Every word you say I think I should write down
Don't want to forget come daylight."
