Smuggle

Smuggle 7/13

I watch sparrows for signs of seasons changing
their eyes are reflection – mirrored unbreakable blocking

I want to know what you watch

Do you mouth words to songs in the condensation on the mirror
I sing Nina Simone in the shower
            shake my ass – I can convince myself to feelin’ good

Late at night I sweat in my room and do nothing about dehydration
            my cat wakes me up at 5am on my days off
            I don’t go out on weekends – I’m a catch

I am convinced that I will bump into you as we turn a corner somewhere in Brooklyn
            That you will be wearing something purple
it will be like a movie
