real

March 6, 2018

I felt cheated when you got in the car

all the pleasantries and mandatory talk

got in the way

what I wanted to say had to wait

and oh god the traffic

 

but at least one genuine thing

came out of it

when i played that song i like

and you liked it too

or at least you said you did

but my friend with problems kept calling

even after we arrived

to meet the others

and there were formalities

with folks brainstorming and talking all around

serious and businesslike

 

cheated again, why can't we just talk?

and with you sitting there

acting ten years older than you look

all i could do was just smile

 

again in the car with the traffic

you bent the pages of my book

showing me where to read and what was best

that was real

that was what i wanted
