Montana Leigh Jackson

its summer & Lorde has just released a new single

& i swear i have never felt
so small/ so permeable/ stuck
within the heat of this night.

i listen as she sings
about wishbones/ about sunlight
& all things Warm/

& all the while i'm begging
the cloud-coated sun above/ to come
out/ & allow me to shrivel
into something less/

than this.
