The cigarette smoke fades, drifting off into the heavens

that send down acid rain, but it's you

that burns my skin.

The car has gotten dirty from the nights we've spent

and all the fast-food restaurants. You swear when you get cut

by the aluminum of an empty Coke can, and its

adorable.

--

I haven't washed my hair in weeks, and you tell me

-that's the meaning of a dirty blonde-

We wiggle our toes in the sand of an abandoned beach,

start fires in the caves and leave them burning

when we run away.
