in her panties and a long shirt
 
i saw the woman
across the street
smoking a cigarette
in her panties and
a long shirt the
other morning
 
i spent a little
longer than usual
looking for the
newspaper that
morning
 
i believe her

husband noticed

the closest thing to happiness
 
i often find myself
dancing with a devil
and pretending i'm
actually enjoying
the ride
 
happiness is a
fool's errand at
best anymore
 
one of these days
i will be dead and
none of this shit
will matter
 
that's the closest
thing to happiness
i can imagine

ample regrets
 
there are
moments
when the
lush trapped
inside of me
wants to put
a saddle on
that unicorn
and embrace
the pain of
a brand-new
tomorrow
 
somewhere
lost in the
sorrow and
remorse of
ample regrets
 
i can't help
but imagine
her lonely
eyes and
my lost soul
awkwardly
bumping into
each other
 
spilling a drink
and then having
to decide
 
be angry or
fall in love
