The Stars Told Me/Taking Care Of Me
I shouldn’t publish it but
The stars told me
They said —dude—
You’re going to have someone
Come into your life mid-month
In a way you didn’t plan.
Someone who has been there for
A long time. Hey man
Don’t shoot the messenger I’m just
Saying what I heard
Direct from the forces of nature.
I swore it was gonna be that girl
I’ve been texting for a few weeks but
I sure ain’t complaining.
I need someone in my life who is
More like me, I don’t care about where they live.
I need a confidant. A colleague.
A fellow poet.
Not to mention of course,
Sinner is back.
I don’t even know who to write a song for now
I think I’ll just keep bitching and moaning and
Writing about my ex. That kind of stuff
Is popular as all hell.
