Random Poem:

How You Fit Into An Early Evening (and why that's fine by me).

A single card between
your rusty spokes.
I can't tell if
when you wake up, you're rearing to go.
I'm not sure how much
of myself
to you
I show.
It seems,
Oh! Whatever
it seems,
I'm so, oh-
vertly out of whatever
you're into. Morning
to you too.
Light crawls underneath
my off-white, wide-awake door,
and honey, I can
blame it all on you.
