proclaiming her deep growing love for me

I didn’t want to go

but she insisted

needing more booze

more cigarettes more life

than I had in my rooms

so we went & I tried

with the few people there

slowly getting drunk

talking nonsense

meaning nothing of weight

to anybody might listen

& then she was gone

found some other fella

could give her more

& I was hoping against hope

he wouldn’t just fuck her

& send her right back

I wanted more for her

than just that

wanted more for me

the last thing I needed

would be her pounding the door

past midnight ‘round three

proclaiming her deep

growing love for me
