|—||John Green, The Fault in Our Stars (via epicjohngreenquotes)|
If you were a city, every day at dusk
I’d fill my pockets with packets of seeds
to pepper the rainwater rivers running
through the cracks of your asphalt
If you were a city, I’d let your air sweep
over & under & over my hand hanging
from a car window, pedal pressed to 60
on your reckless boulevard.
If you were a city, I’d never drag my feet
on your sidewalks, I’d never love you
because your light drowns out the stars.
If you were a city, I’d never judge you
by your infrastructure.
I’d never ask you
how well you think we
