xiii

will i take you back
maybe when you’re
on the ground
crying
begging
kneeling to the stars to
spark one more time
maybe when you’re
on the bed
crying
begging
howling to the moon
so the sun can
rise up sooner
maybe when i sing
i have to go
maybe when you beg
the way i begged
for you not to go
maybe when your stomach is
churning making you feel
dead but alive
all at once
like the dead stars that
are still living
maybe if you told me why
but you didn’t so
maybe never
