Jeweler’s Avenue and the raindrops on the train window are diamonds
as the angel with scoliosis sings love on the rocks and you miss your stop
The girl you knew would come back has done so sooner than expected
as did the girl you didn’t expect to
you have never been on a street so big alone before.
Men on the subway keep offering you their seats
but it’s alright because you imagine they are Leonard Cohen
how could his former lover be so mean to him? everyone steals from Camus.
You woke up too late to eat breakfast
so scramble eggs with cheese and toast think about accompanying it with vodka
change your mind and feed it to the girl who would certainly give up her seat on the train.
