Wait and See

It feels like going backward but that’s okay.

It feels like the foam on the top of cold beer and, you know, that’s okay too.

Let’s blur our vision together. Let’s take a second to breathe. Swig.

Turn the tape over put that song on repeat.

Let’s start again.

I miss you. Each word a pixel stacked one on top of the other. Too close now to see the big picture. The whole picture. Any picture.

Blink. Blink. Blink.

Wipe away that tear.

You’ve made your choice. There’s nothing left to do but wait.

Wait and see.

    Every time I saw the words “Boxer Rebellion” in history class, I always pictured a mob of people, all wearing boxing gloves, rioting in the street.

    Isn’t it funny how a song can be so pregnant with meaning and memories, when it wasn’t written for you? Wipe that tear, L, you’re prettier when you smile.
