Ode to Anyone You’d Best Forget


Seventeen times a day

I almost think of you


The stoplight turns

Bird shits on the windshield

Changed billboard

The phone goes off

Discovered cat puke

Buzzing dryer

Online billing

Ingredient labels

Water-cooler discussion


Tortilla chips

A hand shake

Zoning out in traffic

An obvious look-over

Long smile exchange

Deep breaths

Work e-mails

What I mean to say is

That anything, really

Would be better

Than that
