saying I love you

we tell lies to each other
over hamburgers, french fries, ice cream and milk shakes
about how we like to fuck
and where we want to finger each other
last year when we held hands it felt sincere
now it feels the way burning rubber smells
and when we say I love you
we're just trying to convince an idea that it's real
but we still have fun the way siblings do
sibling who get along any way
and take long walks that go nowhere
