The Sun is Yours

 

 

a girl you once loved tells you to fetch her the sun, but only when it’s at its ripest / now you sit in darkness with the great orb in your hands / outside the earth is filled / with the ear-splitting shrieks of plants / the shudders of the oceans as they freeze over / it’s funny how / the sun becomes small as a tennis ball in your hands / just like you, it’ll do whatever she says / but just like her, it still burns you
