stop the thing king

ignore everything
cow-eyed people, sexy waitresses strutting back and forth before you
the bartender who snorted in your kitchen once
that blonde who chose your roommate instead of you

don’t think
about stealing beer and drinking in public
that pregnant girl three years ago
those bumps on your legs and stomach

your roommates, the laziness and the noise
your best friend sharing a bed with your little sister
the tears burning in your chest

stop thinking about the time!
it will only go forward
you have no money and two broken cars
a shed full of garbage and a rat-infested house

and whatever you do
do not wonder what you did
to deserve this
because you already know the answer
