On our way to get Egg McMuffins,
we stop to fuck in a cemetery.
I pick the most interesting looking gravestone
because I want to make sure this will at least end up being a good story.
Or was that just something we talked about,
and I am remembering the memory of a maybe?
There is no way to accurately measure
the distance between you and now.
I will still sometimes pass a stranger whose smell
tastes like you, drunk, in your second-hand bed, at 4am.
