Have you ever dated a deadbeat? Most of us have at one time or another. The best way to exercise someone out of your life is to write about them.

Losing Time Again

making fires in the ashtray

it’s so full of butts

you won’t empty it.

that easy chair has your permanent imprint

no one can borrow it


you’re watching the tube

scratching the holes where chest shows through

nails need clipping

pop the top of another brew.

thumbing through the paper

passing the headlines behind

not enough time between commercials

stay just where you are.
