whatever today’s date is

It’s building slowly and then quite rapidly to the anticlimactic climax, and the irreparable damage of the letdown is ignored in light of the heavy reality of the situation.

Go forth, I give you leave; though my expectation is that you will not. The sun will burn us slowly and you will not think of me. The world will turn relentlessly and I will not tell you everything, because you don’t want to know. I will go forth, then, with the universe reaching its warm, bleeding hands out to me.

Where were we?

If I thought you'd never read it,
I would write it all down
On a napkin and I'd
Mail it to your P.O. box.
If I thought you'd never pay it any mind,
I'd address an envelope to your town and
It would travel to your block.
It would sit and wait forever,
While both you and I moved on.
You'd never open the letter,
I would never right my wrongs.
Things would get no worse or better,
And life would go on.

If I thought you didn't care at all,
I would write it all down
On a napkin and I'd
Address it to your summer office.
If I thought you'd never suspect,
I'd send it and skip town without
Any major offense.


I would write it on this napkin and mail it to you.
