typewriter.11

they stared at you
they stared at me
get lost! i thought
you said it

i wrote it
i typed it up

one day
i got up off a bar stool
liquid courage
and read it

in 1998
i believed
in you and you
in me

i moved
thousands of miles away
in 2003

i’m not broke
i realized
i’m broken

oxygen starved
the urban air

i don’t smoke
i thought
i’m choking…

doesn’t mean
i didn’t
care
