(S​)​He Said

from by The Cardboard Swords



She said,”It’s kind of crazy that I like you, because I don’t usually like dudes. I think that I might try to spend the rest of tonight beside you.” I said,”you were cuter before I saw you there, with your drunken lean, you showing me your underwear.” You were making a scene, hoping I would care, but I didn’t care. I heard you singing behind my bathroom door, it was an old song so you didn’t remember the words anymore. It was humorous, kind of funny to me, because you always thought that you knew everything. You asked why they never hold you til morning, while managing to ignore the parts of their bodies that make them horny. It’s a long walk from the east hills to the airport, you had to work at 8, came to at 6 wondering what the hell you were there for. It’s a shorter walk from our house to the amtrak station. The next one won’t leave til 8 kid, so just wait and be patient.
