Poem: 25. Prickly

we made the night a mixtape to calm the screeching pitch of anxiety alone together nestled in fleece throws and layers of dog hair I rested my head on your pillow arms discovering and sharing the experience of a new song we listen to Indie rock as the shadows dance on eggshell-white walls your coarse...
