to write you a poem

o to write you a poem
sleepy eyes & 5am
sitting (with my thoughts)
back terrace as the city
is still

o to write you a poem
of all the days & ways
we'd celebrate
Life & Love in themselves
(of course be happy)

o to write you a poem
but words don't burn
like night cigarettes
& memories stain
side street lines

o to write you a poem
of hidden stars
now all gone--
they go before sunrise
like us too

o to write you a poem
my mouth is dry
& here we sit
5 hours away
dreaming together

o to write you a poem
you are
my unfinished
poem
(goodnight)
