I understand it when it's spoken to me
A head on a chest, a cheek
I didn't want to use it to say "I love you."
My mother's tongue
I wanted to keep it alive
Like a creature in a jar
If I loved it enough, it would grow grow grow more
An equation chalk on my hand
When I lay on your belly I want to use it to describe everything
Poison points and like oil it comes out
A hex leading to a suffocating drought
Hoarder of things
Boxes of kids clothes
Dresses from 2003
When you speak it only I understand
I want to pass it down (when you speak it)
I wanted to pass it down (only I understand)
Coffin chest pain (when you speak it)
Rental housing (only I understand)
My spells, they were your spells.
Like snake DNA

Star flowers falling down
Watching Doris on TV
The screen is fuzzy as I melt
Baby fat, silver chains, butterfly curtains
All the colors
Beaming from her eyes
In poppy wires and mud
Glitter destiny jean thighs
She's covered in a sheer sparkle cocoon
Star flowers falling down
An angel descends as I slide my hands
I wax the moon
Times I won't forget
Glimmer blush, flickering star
