Ambience... Lofi brainwashing beats to study and relax to. A ritual nook, tucked in the back Of the museum; A perfectly designed trap For young 20-somethings with anxiety. One, two, three Colorful figures spin across the screen. Or was it four? There definitely weren't five.
Something about it was appealing. Perhaps it felt like a resting place, To be quiet and breathe. Or perhaps we simply liked our idea Of little aliens being under their hats. In that moment though, I felt a door open in me. Where the door was, I couldn't exactly tell. My brain? My heart? Maybe my pancreas, which is my favorite body part.
At first it opened just a crack, But a chill draft slowly swung the door. A light filled that space, Falling on corners that had never been lit.
What I'm trying to say is that While sitting there, Watching the three (four?) men whirl back and forth, I realized that I wanted to love you for as long as the universe would allow. Lo and behold, as if you knew what I was thinking, You looked straight into me with your radiant eyes And took my sweaty hand in your own.
