days like tonight

days like tonight
by jessamyn cuneo
i’ve made a mess
of things
put lotion on
and left it
in the sun
you’re waiting on
little feet
you’re dreading
sudden moves
i’ve stolen a
blooming love &
hung it up
to dry
you’re gliding
on air
you’re walking
on slanted light
i’ve met the tricks
to suicide
knot a riddle
tip the tombstone
smile on trial
for murder
you bake golden cake
with buttercream
to make things
right again
i tried to catch
the time for us
saw it speed by in
skinny jeans
chasing giant
dissolving suns
