Midnight-colored Jelly

For the last week
you have crept into
each one of my dreams

So here’s a proposition:
as long as you’re comfortable
and don’t mind the cinnamon air freshener
you’re welcome to spend the night
with the jars of teeth
the midnight-colored jelly
and the things that fall
through storm drains
with badly drawn road maps
before they have the chance
to land in my dream journal

Leaning against my window view
the space between
forgetting you’re gone
and feeling the morning
sharp and cold on the back of my neck
