You know I hate to tell you this
but I was actually trying
that night when I
slammed the door
and walked around wearing my gym shorts
outside in the snow thinking maybe if I lost my legs
it wouldn’t be so bad.
I probably would have stayed longer too,
if it wasn’t for that sticker
in his bedroom window that says ‘Santa stops here!’
even though Christmas was
practically a month ago,
and I’m standing where someone pissed
the words ‘FUCK YOU’.
Too bad we’re too old
to play pretend
