they've kept me

they've kept
me
from you

they're trying

they've kept
me
from you

I know, I know.

sitting on my queen bed
wondering
where you are

are you in my Florida room
are you next to me under the grey comforter
blue bird blanket
are you on the cold tiled floor

wondering

I know that disposable
is less Eco-friendly

the plastic is not really
recyclable
that I know of

I know. I know

but then the refillable ones
are
always
too heavy

the dark ink spills
on my hands

crimson blue black
seeping underneath
my painted french marshmallow on white fingernails
for days
days

tires me
tires me

tires me.
