Today, let me not shower

Let me not wash the night off yet

I shall cling to my sweat, and stain the sheets

Just for today, let me smell.


Just today, let me lock the doors

Let us forget they are there at all

I shall cling to my phone, and taste names

Just for today, let me be.


Tomorrow, I promise to be myself again

But for now, let’s climb back into bed, alone this time,

Soak up our night

and never shower again.
