Heat Lightning

Today the air is heavy against my skin
and I did not beat the rain

I wonder what makes change wait
to happen all at once

New drawers new sink
New home big life

I’ll still hold your spare key
if you’ll have mine

The thought: I’ve never done this before
Meets: I want to play house with you

Lets fight about how to take care of an iron skillet
and forget to buy coffee filters

You said I’ll meet you there
so I ran down the stairs
