I napped in your bed the other day while you cleaned around me,
like I belonged in the mess and honesty of your bedroom.
So don’t worry, friend.
I’ll keep you awake and be your saving grace
as we coast down the darkened highway at 3:00 am
singing along to all the songs we listened to in middle school.
We alone own this empty road,
kings of the world in this Volkswagen Jetta.
and the stars will guide us back home.
