We were beneath the tree beside our house. Me in my little pink corvette, you in your yellow prowler. We were talking big smack, passing licks and clowning around. Racing each other up and down the street until the sun went down. Then you stood, and you smiled. Your hands rose, you beganContinue reading ““Dreams Of You” by Cortney Joseph”
