only when you slept
was I free to eat my fill
that’s why I left you

one day you got a
flashlight: “open wide and show
me all.” so I did.

you would stand afar
watch my group gab at the bar
chew your straw, alone

embarrassed myself;
you could do a wolf whistle
on your blue les paul

you liked me until
I passed that test you didn’t
then your eyes went cold
