do i always feel like i am saying
life should be full of hellos and see you laters, i
can't take finality like i can't take
not remembering where i set my hat down at age twenty.
well the way i see it
au revoir means "until i see you again" anyway
so let's leave it at that
pretending i don't need to feel like
a lovelorn desperado
shouting across fences i got tired of sitting on.
i never actually wait around now
to hear anyone answer.
