Spaghetti knots

I got you now, love

I got you now, love,

don’t I

with a whoops and oppsy-daisy

and the eventual hammering of two bodies

that weren’t meant to hammer

but have done so today

until they are nailed atop of each other

and the shadows make a cross

of the small miracle

of a girl’s stomach underneath your finger

 

I got you now, love,

don’t I

when the night sparks with streetlights

that used to look down

but have since been up

and pointing to the sky

filling the stars with their light

and her laugh about how a signpost with a bulb

could ever be so misguided

 

I got you now, love,

don’t I

while she has me

in a hold with her whole

where even her hair wraps around

in a knot that cannot be separated

until we kiss or I brush her scalp

for a forever time

 

I got you now, love,

don’t I

during the moments where

she says that she

has second thoughts

about this whole thing

which is only a thing

an abstraction

a nonspecified blah

so how can she not be uncertain

when by comparison,

I have her

 

I got you now, love,

don’t I

with cartoons whirling

and outside beaming

and nothing to do

except her

 

I got you now, love,

don’t I

despite them saying

don’t you know

that love never saved anybody

but it did make some bodies

that needed to be saved

 

I got you now, love,

don’t I

when she says it was a mistake

and she’s sorry

and can’t we go back

and you look behind

and see the sun setting

I got you now, love,

don’t I

under my foot

like a bee squirming

after just leaving a flower

and giving it some pollen from

some plant that wasn’t the same species

and so

a waste of life

 

I got you now, love,

don’t I

so don’t go yet

there’s still so much to see

and it won’t happen again

and I was confused

and wasn’t it nice to get to know me,

love

 

I got you now, love,

don’t I

or was it you who got me

in the end

which is where we are

with streetlights not turning on

like the disappointing pillars

they are

and us too

standing there as scaffolding

that should have stayed inside

or just not built anything

that could have been gotten

then taken

then lost

then destroyed
 

I got you now, love,

didn’t I
