Let’s say that in this equation, x equals listening.
And y equals the velvet of your hand
on my inner knee. And z equals
a widening gap in the clouds where the blue leaks through.
And then p is the tongue. And q is a road of 379 miles,
and r is the rate of what a song does in an empty room.
I don’t know. What I’m saying is that I’ve been trying
to solve the problem, but the variables
keep changing. And where does dirt come into this?
