volatile adhesive

you have no shape
yet you’re kept together
by what i can’t be certain
appears to be volatile adhesive

i won’t light a match near you
appears to be volatile adhesive
i won’t shake you
appears to be volatile adhesive
i won’t microwave you
unless you make me

you have no shape
yet you’re kept together
by what i’ve decided is
volatile adhesive

i’m falling apart so i need
volatile adhesive
where can i get some of that
volatile adhesive
we could cover ourselves in
volatile adhesive

stuck to you by volatile adhesive
we could be a new shape
and we could avoid campfires and
never wear metal for fear of
lighting striking our volatile adhesive or

we could roll down hills and
recline in rollercoaster chairs and
split a pack of matches per day to ignite
our volatile adhesive but

i won’t light a match near you
assuming it’s volatile adhesive
i won’t shake you
pretending it’s volatile adhesive
i won’t microwave you
unless you make me
