Here, drink this.
It won't do a damn thing.
In the morning,
Forget the sky.
She will shake the sun out of her hair,
No matter how much you chart houses, trines, oppositions,
At the start of the day--
At the end of the day--
Distraction means nothing.
Tease the boys until they jump through flaming hoops;
It's no use.
She knows your tarot.
She has your number.
She reads your palm and all the rest of your ready skin,
With her nails on your pulse point
And her tongue tracing your heart line,
Until you come back to your
Back to your so-called
Stop wasting time.
The world will not end if you kiss her.
The world will not end if you go down the valley to find her heartbeat,
But it might
If you don't.
