Hazy Evening

If her dad was my mother
I'd call him mother. I would,
because that is what you call your mother.
If it looks like us I keep it. It is
safe to walk around considering the benefits
of being amused now and again. For instance:
You go on a safari and tranquilize a rhino
and then you go and hug it and take a picture
of yourself with it before it
wakes up and stumbles away drunkenly.
The world looks so familiar to you,
doesn't it? Like you've been here
all along only you just now started
paying attention enough to know how
to take away this way. These days
will devour you if you let them
and then I love you.
