shamrock hearts wale,
the familiar taste of coffee and rain.
why would you waste your time here when the grass wants to see you so badly.
they told me last night.
me and the fireflies tried to wake you,
but your eyelashes wouldn’t budge.
the mermaids all cut their hair
to build a rope to save you
but their braids of gold and violet
never reached your windowsill
for the realization of human beauty caught us all by surprise.
why wake a slumbering child?
but will you see us when you wake up?
will you still care?
you awake, ten inches taller
blackened eyes and holey ears.
you never looked back,
you never heard the mermaids cry.
Nailed it! My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard
