do you know how bad i wanted you, he said,

pushing you up against a sage green wall, yes.

do you know how long i waited, he said,

hands above your head as you shook it, no.

do you know how young we were, he said,

staring, branding a third eye to your skin, yes.

do you remember how i remember you, he said,

flashing crazy, hungry, you wild, untamed thing, no.

do you want to know how we're gonna do this, he said,

intense, grinning, you dreamed, you said, yes.
