Scenes From The Morning I Got Dumped

21 blocks from where I got dumped

In a Rite Aid

A stranger states down at me from immense height.

“Wow, that must’ve hurt.”

Yeah

“Right over the heart.”

Yeah

“You like pain?”

It would appear so

“But it goes away.  The pain.  After a while.”

Yeah

38 blocks from where i got dumped.  A guy pounded on the windows at Toms Restaurant.  I waved back, and walked down the street.  Half a block later, he walked up to me and said: 

“I just had to tell you, you’re so pretty.  I hafta go back into the restaurant now, but you are really pretty.”

39 blocks from the spot where I got dumped, I rounded the corner, stopped in a phone booth, and began to sob.

At least I saw this coming.
