Playing marbles at the bottom of the pool
where there's no ripples or bubbles
to distract from the thickness of melting
into our ghost selves
you in your pinstripes
and I in my sunhat
we're dressed up for halloween every day
even down here I win every time
You pout and
I offer you palm trees and the seas
but you just say
"everyone hates sharing when they're honest
so I let you shoot my cat's eye
and we laugh and play again.
I quit. Sort of.
