The Ramada Inn

The Ramada Inn

You asserted yourself
on a stool at the bar
you came across
the separation where I
behind the bar was safe

You asserted yourself
won me over in spite 
of the fact I didn’t want
to ever be connected

again I was snowed
a man looking for home
and I was a good home
but he wasn’t, they weren’t
they’re not into connection

they want a storybook life
not the stories I’ve read
where they are unconnected
except for sex and paycheck

They’re mowing the lawn
letting you spend money 
on food, clothes for the kids
and what is your fucking problem
what don’t you get bitch?

  1. Whew! Seems people have different expectations....and connections aren't always connected.
