Your Regularly Scheduled Program Won’t Resume

You know that feeling when you have a two hour commute

and a hundred poetry submissions, and you tune out

and open up document after document


and then, one hits


within minutes, you know

that this time will be different

before you’re even finished, you

want to read or hear it again

and go further, you want to touch it


It’s like you’re a teenager

reading that first book of poetry

that has now become ripped

and untrue and nicotine stained

and ultimately,

a part of your essence

your whole history

and your future

everything is tainted

by that influence

whether or not

you even still like it


That’s how I felt

when we first kissed.
