There is something

about the way

my breath was taken away with you

to the bathroom.

(SFX pee + SFX flush + SFX door x 2)


I watched my hands like never before,

instead of grabbing my phone to the abyss

in order to seem completely cool

when you would bring my breath back.


Then I would make a joke

a very funny one

that would take your humor

straight within my thighs

so I could finally have sex

with something funny.

(SFX dinosaur noise)
