where were you when the universe told
her green? i was shopping online. rings 
i bought you that gave use halos. radium 
on the ceiling like a balloon child. 
we jumped electric rope. shaved our heads.
lived whole lives as bowling balls. i wound
the sound of baseball bats around your finger.
let's not forget the veins of the house or
the trumpets that fell into the cellar 
while we were busy kissing. pennies in their
bunkbeds getting ready to be unused. i told you
"i wish it was gold." string rays fly over head.
