i dont know you

from the bottom of my heart
to the tops of my shoes
lets throw our matches out the window,
shop for chopsticks,
listen to cotton candy making machines
while everyone else busies themselves with screaming on
the rollercoaster.

count my money for me,
i forget how
and can’t tell the difference between a quarter and dime.
i’m sorry.
i didn’t know it was canadian money they gave me
in exchange for those magic beans.
at least now no giants
will crawl through your window at night.

yes i keep the coffee cups
and bright.
without chips.
pray, why do you ask?
i am not a baby born yesterday.
you came from me and
i won’t have you talking to me like this.
it was i that read you fairytales
before bed.
never the other way around,
you just don’t appriciate it anymore.

it’s too long ago, i can’t recall.
tell me when or if your brother decides to come home.
the last time
he left he didn’t return for quite a while.
so we had to go make the
cat find him
which you remember didn’t end well.
i am sorry but
my plants need watering
yes, i can get up on my own.

hello, is this you?
i am fine here, thanks. it
smells a little funny and the ladies who
bring my food all think im silly for wanting to call.
i’m beginning to believe them, i think.
how is your brother?
no, that was your cat that died.
remember, the one that i bought for you at the fair
when your father wouldn’t get you some cotton candy.
you have your facts mixed up,
i’m sure that’s how it happened.

why, its nice to meet you,
your eyes remind me of something, i think.
have we met?
well maybe you just have one of those faces.
nobody visits me generally.
oh thats sad that some plants died
why are you telling me this?
are you sure
we aren’t acquainted?

i dont know you
