Around These Parts

It’s
too
hot
in
here, and
the
day
hasn’t even
closed
her eyes
to
rest away
the
layers
that
we often
bring
to
the table.
At
times, it’s
amazing
we’ve
made it
this
far, but
I know
these
parts
like
backs of
hands
and chords
in
between
chords,
and
we’re not
too
far
off the
beaten.

Yeah,
it’s
hot in
here
and your
lips
are
shadowing
our
escape,
so
feel free
to
slow
your roll
a
bit,
since
around
these parts,
we’re
beyond
clandestine.

Yeah,
I know
these
parts like
the
backs of
hands, and
those chords
in between
chords,
but what
I don’t
have
is
that thing
that
draws
me to
you.

One thought on “Around These Parts

  1. I like this.
    I like the raw uncertainty of the dance between the two but what I dig most is the unabashed honesty laid out on the table.

    I’ve missed your work.
