"I don't know what love means."

-Imogen Cunningham


Kiss me until I choke.
Cut a smile and paste
It onto your face
Cranberry sugar-coated
Lips can only go so far
Before there's no turning back
And I'd tell you 'I love you' back, but

(Seaming frayed
Cloth tearing, pulling apart
Ripped at the knees
And this is the key)
Like my favorite pair of jeans
The phrase 'I love you" is worn out.
