leaves

Anne Marie’s 
stretched out 
like a queen

across the back

of a Cutlass Supreme


smokin’ weed

and talking with Kumar

watching leaves

scud across 
the reservoir


Mike is a jerk

cuz he hasn’t yet 
called her

two months at college

and he can’t be bothered
Well you know

he can go climb a tree

cuz he ain’t got 

the common
decency


to give the mother

of his child 
a shout

damn college boys

got it all figured out

  1. And years from now
    down that lonely road

    he'll wonder why
    she won't answer his calls

    and regret those days
    he was such an ass

    and in his dreams he might
    perhaps

    say the right thing.

Say something!
