There

What time is it in Fresno?

What time is it in London?

What time is it in Austria?

I wish I could split my body

Into several pieces

I would send one of me to each of you

So I could paint snails in your garden

Eat sandwiches on your porch

And visit shops in your neighborhood

It doesn’t matter

I just want to be there

And there

And there

And here.

You

You only live three hours away

But it might as well be Austria

And your wifi is terrible

Don't send me postcards

Send me your voice breaking as you fall asleep

Send me your tears on the sleeve of my shirt

Send me your humming as you brush your hair

Send me reading your favorite book on the couch

And the sounds and sights of being alive

I will stay up until 3 am to fall asleep with you in Fresno

I will wake up at 4 am to have breakfast with you in London

Let’s drink coffee in Austria just as the sun sets

My heart is in four different time zones

I don’t need to sleep

What time is it in Fresno?

What time is it in London?

What time is it in Austria?

It’s midnight over here.
