I met a boy
once
who spoke in tongues.
one that never really
understood
the difference between
"there" and "their"
and who had more smoke
in his lungs than thoughts in his head.

I met a boy
once
who knew how to sing
and taught me how to dance
without using my feet
and taught me how to speak
French when we were skin to skin
in his parents' basement.

I met a boy
once
who was never really
"mine" but that didn't stop him
from tripping his way through
my arteries and who's lighter
always burned a little brighter
than I ever could.
