Maybe Every So Often You’ll Think Of Me

April 3, 2018

God & Man You were drinking wine while I was drinking coffee. The hours passed and I still haven’t caught up. You’d be fast asleep while I wander the city streets, the cold air biting at my face as the night sits heavy, drenching the alleys in blackness. Time fades away and the seventy-eight degrees between us soften. You held the old photograph of you in Amsterdam with something resembling…

Donald Trump once infamously remarked while running for president, "I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters."
