I miss you
I miss you.
Uncontainable laughter tickling every muscle in my stomach
Our squeaky howls diffusing out of every window in our brick apartment complex
Shiny, black walkie-talkies stuttering under white linen sheets
Chocolate syrup drip, dropping onto wooden floors, powdered sugar melting on our mischievous tongues
We didn’t care.
My joints are cold as ice, frozen in a time I wish I could dissolve with an eraser
Strangers panting as they haul brown cardboard boxes up to the fourth floor
Lithium triple AAAs nowhere in sight
Puddles linger on the ground. No one bothers to clean them up.
