“Anyways”

Poem:

The crab you tried to save, was already dead.

But you tried to save it anyways.

Over and over again.

Like a boy, like a dreamer.

And when the night was round like the moon,

We packed up,

And you gave up.

Just one time your hand did slip.

And it’s all I wanted.

But you did not try.

Over and over again.

Like a man, like a realist.

I tracked sand in your car, and you didn’t care.

It was like me, you said.

A little messy,

Never really gone.

Nothing clean, or crisp, or defined.

Our boundaries meld.

And you drive home with the shore in your car,

And a redheaded girl wanting to make things messy.

Over and over again.
