a boy and girl

There was a boy who was in love with a girl
She was not as beautiful as you think
But he thought she was the world, and the moon, and the stars

He hid his heart in his work
The kind that was drawn on walls and spelled out in cereal letters
She came and smeared the colors together and swallowed every last drop of milk

But he laughed and brushed her cheeks
And settled his little fingers in the crevices of her dimples
She grabbed his hand and bit it

He screamed out for mercy and cried and cried
She said "shh, shh," as she kissed the teeth marks
He smiled again
