NEW YEAR'S 1999
(1/1/19)


she
wasn't
my type

she was
country

she was
NASCAR

she was
too young
for me

although
we seemed to have
some mutual
attraction

sex

I guess

mainly
sex

I wanted
to show her
a good time
for the holiday

take her
to a nice
club

drink

dance

all
of the usual
happy shit

but I remember
her saying
through
the commotion

more
than once
that night

that we should
go back
to my place

celebrate
the New Year
together

just
the two
of us

I didn't
really hear
her
at the time

I was
already in
the drunken
moment

I remember
those things
now

as I
bring in
2019

reading
in bed

quite
sober

quite
alone

wondering
if she ever
found that guy
to stay
home
with her
