Spit Me Out

Inhale Me

Oh, how I would love

To be his cigarette

If only I could be

Held between his lips

To be inhaled by him

Oh, how I would love

To be the tobacco that he chews

To be swallowed

And spit out

By you

From afar, I sit by the water

And watch you

Dark peppery hair

Faded down into your tattoos

Read me a story

About the rest of our lives

And I’ll see my reflection

Staring back in your eyes
