pressing keys

I was dead before I loved you
Cameren texted me, asked if I had known you
answer him with a question
I'll have Veronica look away for just a second
as long as I need her to, before I lose grip
soon after, count to 77
I'll take all these pictures and write all over them
I work too hard for the "inbetween moments"
cherry picked from a weekend
gather my belongings from a desk
and that's it, that's what she said happened

the thoughts of one phoenix
emilys child knows more than just ashes
you said your favorite was ashes
that picture taken in Illinois
hearing things you've heard besides noise

saying things I've said in pig latin
can't understand me? that's your problem
im sorry let me repeat myself
put quotes around my dialect

said I loved you while I was dead
I prolonged the inevitable
said your name was Catherine
in November it almost happened
rearrange all the fact into fiction
I'd apologize but I still don't know who I am

I'll transition into pressing keys
I'm used to it, it's so fucking easy
I'm laying all vertical, my aunts are texting me
I'm just swiping away their pity

and I somehow arrived at this garden without beds
the beauty is so intimate - I'm sleeping in a twin
take apart the two, when I have a guest
all 6 of them
all 6 of them
all 6 of them
