barflypoet & author of dark fiction


‘band-aid, she always uses a band-aid’


he’s interesting—

he’s well-traveled

he’s a musician on weekends

he’s single

but he’s not my type.


i listen to her words

and shake my head sadly

knowing she’ll find a reason

to take him up on a night out.


listen to this poem
