Mouse
peacetonight

Playing tic tac toe
 1
On my misty fogged up window
 2
Pretending our fingers are painters
 3
and we’ve  run out of finger paint
 4
 
 
Breaking in winter with sweatshirts
 5
And our dusty hearts
 6
What is cold without love
 7
What is love without cold
 8
 
 
Smoking a clove
 9
Handling it like a cowboy
 10
Squinting with every inhale
 11
Raising eyebrows with every exhale
 12
 
 
You’re leaning back
 13
Hiding behind your own face
 14
Flushed cheeks
 15
Pink-shaded soul
 16
 
 
Talking deep
 17
With belly laughs
 18
And driving past our exit
 19
Letting the world roll off our chests
 20
As the sign blazes past
 21
And reflects in the rearview mirror
 22
 
 
I’m ashing out the window
 23
You’re mouthing the words to the song
 24
Not parting  your lips
 25
 
 
I will call you mouse.
 26
