Random Poem:

Blue Oyster Cult

a $5 footlong at Subway
before a meeting
on Thursday
Burnin' For You came on the speakers
i wanted to call you
i am sorry
while i still could
but i didn't
assuming you didn't want to hear it
and i would have understood
if you didn't
a resentment is a tough habit to give up
like a scar
you get used to it
and cannot imagine yourself
without it
but if you were right about there being a God
if you were right about there being an afterlife
i hope you have heard me
playing Don't Fear The Reaper
all day
