This is how people get hurt

Those strobe lights shouldn’t be allowed

in such a small room

because it replaces the calm wave

that I rode in on

and we shouldnt be allowed to drink

three skullcaps worth of soju

but we always do


and you shouldnt have said

that I couldn’t leave the room

however grinningly

with whatever intentions


our longstanding friendship


But the next morning,

when i asked if I broke the skin

you lied, pull your sleeve down

and said that I didn’t, just because

you didn’t want to hurt

my feelings

    1. i AM sorry about that, but also, you should never block someone’s exit when they want to go home! it’s not cute!
