you're going to sleep.
but i was going to stay up and work
and when i stay up and work
you don't sleep well.
so you should..
stay up!
so i don't have to feel bad
about keeping you up–
study
or something.

maybe..
well, maybe you..
want me to kiss you
on the back?
forever.
or the shoulder?
forever.
but if you want me to stay forever?
i can't in the bed.

but i can take you with me!
strap you to my back
and sway you
gently to sleep
as i bob
and weave
over the keyboard
mm...
