i would have taken you closer
so you wouldn’t have to rely
on robot eyes

i’d protect you up there
from rowdy bystanders
who bruise

you wouldn’t hear me
but you’d smile
i’d know

you could escape with me
the quickest route
back home

we’d stop to eat
laugh about the fools
behind us

afterwards we’d rest
let the late night
cool us

your open window
let the summer hiss
sneak in

our eardrums still ringing
lightly breathing

while a small creature
sits between us

the morning will greet us
with a sunbeam
on our souls
