Where do you go when your eyes change?
Most likely I’ll never know, but
I hope you do
If not for your sake
Then for whoever is next
In line. Ha!
Like I give a damn about them
It’s heartbreaking and nerve-wracking
In equal measure
To see a stranger where you just laid
Peering back at me like your cat
Sizes up a pigeon on the other side
Of the glass

That’s not fair, I know
If it weren’t this it would be
Something else
A creaky floorboard that I must step on
I can’t live in apartments anymore
The neighbors are far too loud
All of them
I will find the jagged rock
To rest my head on
To produce the crick in my neck
Needed to write angsty words
Like these
It’s all I know
