Small Talk

How can I woo
you back?

I don’t always
want to
write about
Nietzsche or
Existential angst.

There’s a time and place
for that.

I just want to lie
here and look into
your eyes.

Have some small
talk while
I gently
rub your
thighs.

I’d love for
you to enjoy
the simple
things I
write about
too.

Like how
I mismatch
my socks
or how
I crack my
right thumb
at night.

Climb into
this warm
bed with me,

and we’ll
talk about
life
until
we are
both
cozy and
fall asleep.
