PHONE CALL: THE MORNING AFTER


"Revenge is like the sweetest joy next to.." 
-Tupac Shakur, "Hail Mary" 

Remember, last week, you called me 
"too dull" then suggested I not yell. 
I took your advice; you left me. 
But it appears to serve me well. 

Your new love came here in the dark, 
expecting proof we're quits upheld. 
It seems my silence ate at her heart, 
but it appears to serve me well. 

I passed her my last two bennies 
because aqua vit downs like hell. 
I don't do ambiguity, 
but it appears to serve me well. 

Now, now, please don't cuss, I assure 
she's quite fine-all doubts dispelled. 
And we were both very mature. 
but it appears to serve me well.
