rumor got around to me
that he had dated her and she
drove him to drink. that she was reckless
and terrible in bed and wildly, insanely
depressed and negative. Some of the men
I’ve dated could say the same about me.
But the ones I really loved are waiting
outside my door to get back in. Now, I
never liked this chick. But I have to admit
that maybe she didn’t like me either
and it sounds like she didn’t like him.
Maybe, in the right sort of light,
she is dazzling. Or, you know,
maybe by now, at least
she’s managed to get
herself on medication.
I heard, “He found someone
new. He’s happier.” I said,
“Good. maybe she is, too.
Maybe she got older and matured
maybe she even found someone
who could help her.” in any case,
he sounds like a real jerk.
