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.
