Saturn

After I do yoga I think

I am brand new!

I have big feet and I have

muscles and

bones and nails and

hair!

when I wake

up before you I

roll over and bring

my foot to your chest and

imagine you awake saying

woah! I guess this is the

real you!

 

the week I moved in

with you I was looking

at the sky

a lot to see Saturn

…if I’m gonna change I should

do it quick!

When we first met you

lied to me

about a few things

to make me like you

but that

is not a big deal

I want to go

backpacking

in Arizona lets

learn how to make our

own kimchi

we have the same dirt

under our

nails and the same

smoke in our

lungs the

week I moved in I

told you that my

highlights are fake and I can’t really

cook

I guess I just figured

you’d find out

eventually!
