Old Flame

We used to ponder the world,

you and I,

in perfect whimsical harmony

— profoundly & brazenly

with complex thoughts & lingering phrases,

sipping distilled fermented fruit & thinking

of how we’ll never grow old together,

and how that’s a good thing

because old is what we felt we were,
