Mutt Life

If I knew how to do anything
But love you, I wouldn't want to

For how river listening with you is mint chocolate chip ice cream
Smeared on your flustered cheek, baffled by rigid escape
Of commonwealth air, ambigious loss
(Is the offspring of such
Stored pebbles off its construction roads)

[Hata Bildir]
