on a wednesday special

precisely eight days after valentine’s day,

i don the pink argyle short sleeve shirt

he abandoned at my home.

 

i enter the bar to the refrain

love in a pink cadillac.

i smile and pretend not to notice.

 

no one sits on the stool next to me.

i pretend that muted cnn enthralls me.

i smile and pretend not to notice.

 

the pretty in pink love theme blares.

an australian finds a twelve carat pink diamond.

the universe kneels and proposes.

 

i answer yes.
