I Need a Bill Murray


Mostly to turn off
the lights and make eggs.
To take silent milk baths.
To tell me I’m the jerk.
To lie apart in bed because
there are enough tangles.
With eyes that speak only cruel
or amused—sometimes both,
because mean's okay—and
a comb over, but I won't
let that come between us.
To remind me I'm the girl
with these fucking rosy lips
and all these serious veins.
