i will bake brownies to lessen your discontent every time we're together

let's start a new thing
a house and a baby
tell your brother to visit
maybe some of your friends too?

my leg is tired
my leg is old

if i stretch out then bend
to huddle close
we can pretend
we're jellyfish
fleshy and wet
contracting and releasing to move

start something with me
i'm excited to feel you near
my lip is swollen
from the ant bite
your word is wounds
from a pen knife

And my leg is ... OH SHIT.

The best part may have been about jellyfish, but my favorite was the quick and cruel rhyme at the end.
