we’ll have to let mine stand

I read that thing

you wrote he writes

& it wasn’t like that

you distorted things

make me look bad

ok I tell him

later over the phone

you tell it like it was

but no

he goes on telling me

what a fool I am

like the vote

had not been done

on that one

you write it I tell him

you write it like

how it was for you

& we’ll meet up

compare notes

oh fuck you!

comes the reply

so I guess

we’ll have to let mine stand

I say to the ether

as he has already gone
