the stars, the sea, and sleep.

We Burned The Barn Down

Water drops stop and spread out on the windshield
That pop as soft as keys and spell out a worn-out lullaby
To put these childish dreams to sleep,
And gently nudge me awake.
I'll pull these curtains back slowly
I'll get out of bed, red exit, stage left.
Step back and look at your college life
Step further, hear the murmur of static lips,
Senior summer stutter kisses, going up, up, up!
What do I miss so that I now hold the cup?
Just remind me of a warmer night.
Just sneak me into bed tonight.
