fourteen hills

it was a hilltop

where we sat

until our butts got so cold

we had to stand


“we’re higher

than most of the people in this city”

but only because we wanted to go to the top

and knew

we belonged there


you said to evan and i

“this city seems so small”

and evan said

“but when you’re inside of it

it goes on forever”


perfection doesn’t rsvp

and it usually shows up with strangers

but it was only the three of us

last night

we knew

what there was to know about each other

even if we had no idea

how we found out


after we wrote those words

across the skyline of our city

we went down the hill

to where forever was waiting

with its arms open wide
