leaves


Anne Marie’s 
stretched out 
like a queen

across the back

of a Cutlass Supreme



smokin’ weed

and talking with Kumar

watching leaves

scud across 
the reservoir



Mike is a jerk

cuz he hasn’t yet 
called her

two months at college

and he can’t be bothered

Well you know

he can go climb a tree

cuz he ain’t got 

the common
decency



to give the mother

of his child 
a shout

damn college boys

got it all figured out

  1. And years from now
    down that lonely road

    he'll wonder why
    she won't answer his calls

    and regret those days
    he was such an ass


    and in his dreams he might
    perhaps

    say the right thing.

    he's on his way toward
    escape velocity

    & she---well,
    its all too common
    a thing
