It's Like a Hallmark Card
You just had to give me a goddamn hickey.
I mean yes,
my plans for you had the subtlety
of a high-rise apartment building,
but I thought allowing you to see me
later without makeup
would have fulfilled the necessity of ownership.
But with that shy smile you had
I couldn't help but laugh along with you
so obviously pleased with yourself.
The badge of affirmation:
No, I didn't sleep alone last night.
You promised you wouldn't.
