cute short hair love life, 2

he liked
your hair better
when he had control
over it,
now the wind does,
your friends say
it looks
fucking awful,
but it's still better


she called in sick
her boss asked
if she was okay
but she doesn't 
feel comfortable enough
to answer, 
instead she's standing
silent in black,
phone to her ear, one hand,
the other is holding £2.99 flowers
she brought at a gas station
but she isn't sure why,
who are they for?
the parents? the stone?
she goes to say something
but it's 2009
and they're drinking cheap wine
and she will never
be crying down the phone in 2017
