for Becca

today you wake up & you open the curtains
     you are flooded with emotions

it’s the rain we’ve all prayed so long for

today the two birds hopping along the overgrown grass
just look so in love & you start to cry 

     you see them plucking pink worms writhing from the damp earth 
you swear they share a lady & the tramp moment 

you think about being brought a plate full of spagworm
freshly harvested by your future lover at dusk

     to later tweet about how dreamy it was to your friends
tomorrow you will wake up & you will cry again 

this time at how cute the cat’s tiny pawprints are 
when they’re damp & dotted across the kitchen bench

like he was trying to make biscuits for real this time
