12th Wedding Anniversary
Jailed and decreased, my doughnuts rise.
Have a feather, don’t ask why,
There is a Coney Island in my eye.
Hair and plaid rabbits,
Anniversal belief is the strongest to go
Over a listless sky, a prevenient frost.
Let’s go to the Cloisters
And all you can eat sushi
My tattoo should be healed now.
Dear, you are a norming legend in the kitty-star.
I eat for two, on the evening of
We knew each other before our faces and our names.
