Day 128
7:45 pm – 8:25 pm

Time – 1, 2

She is a muthahfucker
Isn’t she?

All sassy and prancing
Across our faces
Take that for
And she traces her
Little strokes as
She flits about
Toting her set
Of permanent pens
Fine tip though they
May be for now

She is getting ready
Eyeing her big
Bold tip guys

She is just biding herself

Heals all wounds
They say

Sometimes They
Do know what they’re talking about

Why, look at you
Or rather, look at me
Back then,
Looking at you

I could have smashed
Right in to you
Pulled the parquet floor
From underneath
Your feet right in front
Of the entire reception
And every time
I looked at your
Looking away
It made me
Yet terribly satisfied to know
You couldn’t look at me

And those people who
I thought were my
I could have easily
Told each of them
To fuck off
For looking at me in the face
While tucking in their tails

But I didn’t

And I’m so glad!
Because, look!
Time passed!

And those friends
Are actually still my friends

And that boy we
Stood underneath
Is now a ghost
I can see

And you,
I just wonder
If you’re well and
Think how much
Fun it’d be
To sit with our
Looking back
At that time
With that asshole
And to the
We’ve become now
