it is storming, storming
and I am being devoured by mosquitos
because I watched Her and want to die and couldn’t alone with my feelings
and wanted to play them on the ukulele 
but my roommate was going to bed
flash forward
I am on the porch with a ukulele
youtubing Judy Garland performances
listening to my cat cry for attention on the other side of the window screen
to the smell of rain and Off
bring me some whiskey and a pizza and we’ll call it love
