Stay here stay here stay here
(repeating ad infinitum into the dark,
into the open windows of my car
out to the night
so much more for you so much more please stay.
I look out into the night, look into my mind to remember the things that are waiting for me.
I know you feel unwelcome but please stay.
I know that you feel that there is no room for you and that you need to be by yourself but please stay.
I smoke and I smoke and I smoke and I smoke
I smoke until finally I find something that makes me laugh, I comment, “thank you, that finally made me laugh.”
knowing that it will only last until it doesn’t.
And now it is gone again.
