missed connection pick: “i shouldn’t”

but I want to share my all with you
I want to light you like a campfire
and rock you slow in a pitch-dark room,
I want to feel the measure of your warmth
and surrender completely my snake-bit stoicism

I want to love you and not look back

I want to rest in your arms while listening to the scratched devotion
of a Depression-era pop song
moist on the lips of a disembodied voice
reanimated on a broken record
spinning into space
