Because, late nights that merge into mornings
and snorting laughter in knowing we don’t need more things.
Because, feet that reject the concept of closed-toe shoes
and their owner with hummingbird face tattoos.
Because, over the shoulder glances of coy “follow me” mischief,
you and the universe in on a secret, eyes flirt: “wouldn’t want to miss this.”
Because, delivered hand-written napkin notes
full of ridiculous riddles and rebellious antidotes.
Because, poems that don’t have nor want proper form,
perfectly messy creative storm.
Love elephant and want to go steady?
