SHE LIED
(11/30/06)


she smiled at me
from across the crowded room
we were a couple after all
that connection there
no matter
the in-between

little did I know
that she was smiling
and thinking

"what am I doing
with this loser
he works
he writes
and later he'll bitch
about me dragging him
to this party"

I was smiling
nodding
and hoping
that she was horny
and wanting to leave
this shitty party
very soon

I had some
writing to finish
and needed
to get to work
early in the morning

a month later
she dumped
this loser
but
not without
a comfortable place
and a man
on which
to land

"I love you"
she said
