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.”
“Right over the heart.”
“You like pain?”
It would appear so
“But it goes away. The pain. After a while.”
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.
