I LOVE YOU, ERIN
On a night being drunkenly driven
I thought, “this would be a nice moment to die
and if I survive this moment
I will live this life lovingly and devotedly.
Why would I want even one moment of my short life
to be over? I’m going to live” and I did!
I got married and moved away. I got a dog.
I ate feta cheese and nuts,
nothing but nuts between 2pm and 4:30pm.
I kept drinking coffee but I DIDN’T get breast cancer,
and I learned way more bird names.
I got into hockey and explained the rules to Dave.
I bought a car and it’s perfect, I drove it to New Mexico.
On my way, a diner waitress said, “I like your haircut.”
