Supposed to Listen

I’m supposed to be dressed right now.

Showered, hair blow dried,

make up on.

Ready to go.

My face is

washed

my feet,

dirty.

You were supposed to

hug me

but you are doing

a radio show.

I was supposed to

listen but your voice

is too loud and your words are

too many.

I will lie later

say

‘I loved the songs

the insights were insightful

You’re a natural

the next ira glass

She’s the next

sarah Koenig.’

You’ll be too happy to doubt

I’ll be too tired to care

I’ll say thank you for the shoutout

You’ll forgot you never said my name.
