owe me nothing

I’d travelled to go see

knocked quiet there at her door

& she opened an inch said

I don’t wanna see you anymore

& a man has questions

presented blunt as all that

what to say given such a surprise

found myself walking off

befuddled bemused none the wise

catching the bus to my own city

had I got the right town

the right year day

was I just wearing the wrong shoes?

went back to my place

put on a record took a drink

thought on the wasted fare

the time the day long gone

& what was I owed in all of this

came up with nothing

is what she’d given me

not even kiss cheek goodbye

& for all of that I was the richer

at least

in my eyes
