For Colleen

One day
both of our lovers
will be dead and gone
and we’ll be sitting on
the front porch laughing
at how we wore them out,
prideful of our longevity
while secretly mourning
all the people we’ve let
turn to dust around us.

I intend to
use my heart out.
Give it away
and tear it back,
loan it out and
splurge on
replacement parts
if necessary.

Because one day
all of our lovers
will be dead and gone
and while we sit on the
front porch laughing
I want to make sure
my stories are
better than yours.
