    I want fresh pineapples everyday, and bananas
    with 2% milk and honey-roasted peanut butter,
    which isn't a lot to ask for in comparison to pedicures
    or the high-end expectations of the last blonde-locked
    ambition that you coiled around your arm.

    Pears and carrots, green-leaf lettuce, tomatoes
    with a bag of yellow lemons. A window to the city.
    A ticket out of foster homes and ramen noodles
    and halfway houses where bitches beat you down
    and break your ankle for a used laptop and hairbrush.

    I'll grow out of this cast and into my wings, fold you
    into my body, and when I find my voice I'll sing
    like a little jeweled bird in her Emperor's cage.
    You'll age, and I'll pretend I never notice. We'll be
    what poets call Spring and Winter, and live Happily.

      I have to wonder if you are not selling yourself short in the first stanza? Don't you deserve the pedicures and other perks the blonde
    got?

      this is absolutely beautiful. real or imagined. there's a rhythm in it that can carry a very nice voice as well. sounds like longing. for change and for a man. hope it works out, or at least it works out enough to move on and find something like what you're looking for. and sounds like a realistic way to want.

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
