the little things

her breath smells like cigarettes

but her lips taste like spearmint gum.

it’s something i haven’t quite figured out yet but i’m convinced the more tastes i get the easier it will be to understand.

i’m always looking for a conclusion so i can’t stop kissing her.

i don’t think she’ll complain.

doesn’t she know gum is supposed to erase bad breath?

she doesn’t usually break the rules

never stands too close to a building even though that’s where the ashtrays are,

doesn’t try to light up in the bar,

and she always puts the butt back in the box instead of on the ground.

she says,

the little things add up

and i couldn’t agree more.
