what do you dream about?


i wasn’t ready for hannah or
how at our winter formal she
toyed with me next to my date

i exploded with ambition but
she saw the smoke from miles away

how easy it must have been
to take me out and shut me down
but the real miracle was that
the last time i called her she
scolded me with a thousand insights
on what i could do better
like we’d been together for years
and i told her that hearing
all my flaws from her in such detail
after only knowing her shortly
turned me on
and she hung up

and i guess i never would be
ready for hannah
for now she’s married and hiking in utah
and i’m just single and sitting in nowhere
ready now but never to.
