the kind of girl

the night she drove here the air was thick and hot
everything smelled like honey and lightning lit up the sky

the next week I bought her a toothbrush for my place 
(even though watching her brush her teeth with her finger
was the highlight of my day)

she looks perfect when she wakes up
and when I say weird things
she responds with something even weirder

we laugh so hard it's hard to breathe
and I've never met a skinny person 
so comfortable to nap with

she's the kind of girl you take to your parents
and you take to sushi
and you take to cut a key to your apartment

it's like I dreamt her up
except she's always there when I wake up
