I still remember the landline

"Divano, seoffale, e stipetto" by Guglielmo Ulrich

My heart is the sediment shifting/ So long as I am a mountain I will move to you/ So long as you are a rabbit I will be the moon glistening in your fur/ Standing here, chained in paper dresses/ I will be counting each loop for you/ Gather you up in my hands and fill the room with plastic bag balloons/ Tracing the power washed shapes lining the barrels of catnip/ Let us stain our fingers red with blackberries and paint ourselves older/ Your face will become mine/ My arms will only grow larger as you expand in my embrace
