End of the Line

Ill-Advised Love Poem

Come live with me
And we will sit

Upon the rocks 
By shallow rivers

Come live with me
And we will plant acorns

In each other's mouth
It would be our way

Of greeting the earth
Before it shoves us

Back into the snow
Our interior cavities

Brimming with 
Disagreeable substances

Come live with me
Before Winter stops

To use the only pillow
The sky ever sleeps on

Our interior cavities
Brimming with snow

Come live with me
Before Spring

Swallows the air
And birds sing
