and what I mean when I say this is
my love has teeth. What I mean
when I say this is we will feel it all.
There are so many things that bore me
like waiting in lines and small talk
with strangers on airplanes
so when it comes to love,
the only thing I know how to be
is full. You find yourself
in between the lines of my poems
and laugh at loving the girl
born with a pen between her teeth.
I kiss your forehead when
we are drunk at bars and you
are only a little embarrassed.
I never learned how to love halfway
and what I mean by this is I hope I never do.
What I mean by this is
we are going to feel it all.
We are alive
and we are going to feel it all.”
