we vibe

we could vibe like they did in those house parties with the red lights and fucking beneath staircases
sans the fucking
there’d be no talks of extracurricular relationships and how my money’s made
be satisfied with secrets
have a few of your own
you’re not totally the prude they’d tease you for being
all that according to the inhibitions growing smaller and smaller as we threw them from the train caboose and watched virginia disappear like the daughter we didn’t plan for
this plan we’re designing will work
put on the roots
and vibe with me real quick
