sneaky listening

john mayer sounds twice as amazing
coming from your speakers.
i wouldn’t have believed he could sound better
than my headphones wrapping me in this breath and blues

but here i am in your chair,
on your laptop, playing each of my favorites in succession
singing along and really

i’m not sure if i’m more surprised that he’s better
or that you know him–
or what to do with how much
this discovery makes me love you more.
