i want this world

I want this world.
I want to walk into the ocean and feel it trying to drag me along like I’m nothing but a broken bit of scratched glass,
And I want to resist it.
I want to go
Staggering and flailing my way
Through the bars and back rooms
Through the gleaming hotels and the weedy lots of abandoned sunflowers,
And the parks where dogs are let off their leashes in spite of the signs,
Where they sniff each other and roll together in the grass.
I want to lie down somewhere,
And suffer for love until it nearly kills me,
And then I want to get up again
And put on that little black dress and wait for you, yes you, to come over here
And get down on your knees and tell me
Just how fucking good I look
