I’m sorry I missed the bus
that you hurried to get on.
I should have stowed away.
I must catch up with you
before they pull the plug.
All I do now is wait for a bus
that knows where you went.
I can hear you yelling at me
for not changing my shirt or pants,
and you can forget about my never
changing the sheets on our bed.
When I catch up with you
I’m going to wring your neck!
