i was convinced it would
too and i trusted there was
no one else
i didn’t know
there was someone moving in
as i was moving out
three weeks later a box of new toys
was delivered and her assistant brought
it to my rental house as a mistake
i opened it
and that’s when i felt something was up….
i called her
‘i have your new dicks on my kitchen counter?’
and then i listened to the album
and i understood

oh you already have someone in the wings
oh you already have pined for another
oh you are done here
oh i have become another one of your exes…”
