Andrew Warner

like like i love you

i love you the way blackberries love august
like sawdust loves garage floors
and cobwebs love corners
like sidewalk-chalk stains love rainy days on lonsdale
i love you like skytrains love breaking down

i have broken down, many times in front of you
but you still hold me like a raccoon
cradling its dearest bag of garbage
