blind date

I hadn’t shaved in a few days
but at least I showered

I keep telling myself I’m doing
so much better since

they talked me down

and now here I am
a few days later going on

a blind date

smelling somewhat delicious
and sporting a three day beard

as I wait looking out the front window
I keep asking myself

what the hell am I supposed
to talk about

january two thousand twenty
