fine white powder

every time the radio plays that song
i’m back in the old bedroom
you are sitting on the floor
i’m coming up behind you
putting my arms around your neck
falling into you
burying my head into the warm crevice
there between your neck and shoulder
your familiar scent overpowering me
i am inhaling you like fine white powder
addictive desperation reawakening
rushing through to my core
reanimating me
and you are the flesh and bone mountain
looming hard and high before me again
i’m sliding down and sighing heavily
landing languishing on top of you
stoned in love
every time the radio plays that song

Currently unavailable for purchase



…and even after all this time
it can still make me feel
white bread and average
the cloyingly mushy middle
of a brilliant girl sandwich
