Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?, Morgan Granosk
Far above our paper houses, God spilled milk
into the sky. Smeared clouds to make curd sunsets.
Beautified that chalky orange against the white street
lamps, as if to mimic a paradise, as if to say, “Never leave.”
The candy dust from our pixie sticks agree.
Blue, purple, pink- say, this can be life.
It can always be this sweet, it can just be
me licking sugar from the corner of your mouth.
It can be us tangled in a waltz beneath the lights
stationed over our heads. Our haloed silhouettes,
the dazzled reflections of lovers’ dreams. We can stay here
like the lotus eaters and decay happy, dancing together.
