nonsense ramblings

i aim to bottle the heat of the afternoon sun

carefully placing a couple of rays in a small candy jar

and closing the lid tightly with industrial strength adhesives.

i will store these bottles inside a box,

place the box under my bed,

and guard it closely as if my life depends on it,

so that during those nights when stars refuse to make an appearance,

with the cold creeping into my bedroom to lie beside me,

when the blanket is one-person too big,

and the pillows are trying to perform a duty they were never meant to do,

i will reach under my bed,

take a bottle of sun,

and hug it under the blanket until i fall asleep.
