I pause for a moment,
skank in my kitchen,
yelling lyrics to my empty house,
I fed my common sense to the world years ago!
I laugh, half-run and half-skip

So many disjoined thoughts
float through my head:
my punk-rocker crush’s new picture,
seeing my deceased friend’s Facebook page this afternoon,
an upcoming concert date’s rapid approach,
the guy who has fallen in love with an image he’s made of me.

Jilting all these thoughts
from my mind, into the night.

grab my notebook and pen
and write a happy scene.
