"WYD" by Carrie Laski

 

my shadow in november against a house

I wonder

how to tell you that you make me feel ecstatic

I want to leave a clementine on your doorstep

tied with a red ribbon

and then run away

all night I’ll listen to songs I liked in 2009

to get in the mood to not text you

I bet

(I bet!)

you’re doing something cool right now

but it would be nice if you knew how great my bed feels

when it’s cold outside

and everything green has gone dead
