when i was younger
my father told me to never trust boys
with brown eyes
because “they’re full of shit
up to here”
and he’d point to his forehead
when i met you
and noticed the single brown speck
in your blue eyes
i laughed and said
“you must be full of shit
and very good
at hiding it”
i’m not laughing anymore

i hope i am aware when my heart stops beating
and i hope it happens soon
i want to close my eyes and hear it slow
let it be the only sound in the room

if scars best
convey the story,
i read a novel every time
i see the sadness in
your eyes

we used to check for change
in payphones
to spend in quarter machines
now we look for change
in people
the world is full of fiends
