you took your clothes off at my house
and we took a nap in my bed
and nothing happened
because i was innocent once
and so were you
and i hadn’t slept yet
you probably had, though
and outside the world was fresh
and the cold would come soon.
your mom was coming to pick you up
didn’t want her to know my parents weren’t home
we turned on the shower, as if to say
there is an adult in there.
but they didn’t ask questions when they got there
you just left
and didn’t call me for a little while.
once, in my car,
we were going to the mall
and i quit my job, right there
to spend the day with you
i really fucking hated that job
