my friends called today, down from l.a.

just some night
out with friends
mine
yours
ours
who knows
some bar
trying too hard
to be dive
it’s not
it’s fine
you excuse yourself
for a minute
someone steals
your seat
i start
to protest
but figure
i’ll just
give you
mine
you return
3.4 inane conversations later
finally
without missing a beat
you sit
on my lap
i say something
that sounds like
smmmchheeha
you wiggle
get comfy
lean back
and place a
hi
gently
in my ear
bryan adams’
heaven
plays in my head
though
hidden speakers blare
motley crue’s
girl don’t go away mad
you know
just go away
but don’t
ever
someone says something
to me
maybe
you say
oh!
and start talking
fast
i’m
trying to follow
your story
but staring
and staring
at your lips
you reach
the punchline
everyone laughs
you bask
lean back
play with my hair
i forget how
to do long division
your glass is empty
you sip from mine
you
excitedly
turn to see
a squabbling couple
behind us
your dark hair
velcroes to
my stubble
i
suddenly
understand
art
you rest your head
against mine
i’m tiiiired
you half-whisper
wanna get out of here
i realize
without a doubt
my entire life
has been a prelude to
this
moment
you turn to me
waiting
eye brows raised
lower lip bitten
i look into those
eyes
that melt me
everyfuckingtime
take a deep breath and say
smmmchheeha

    “dark hair velcroes to my stubble” – excellent detail.

    Bryan Adams’ “Heaven” is one of my dirty little secrets.
