Flight

an ex-girlfriend pings me

and tells me she can’t fly anymore

Could you before?

it was an obvious question

but it drove her crazy,

You really weren’t paying attention, were you?

I probably wasn’t, being drunk the entire time and what not,

Come to think of it,

I can’t even remember her face anymore,

I guess I will just have to

imagine

that she looks like an emu,

so why can’t you fly anymore?

 I was unemployed

willing to play along,

you stole the wind from under my wings

it wasn’t the alcohol that killed me,

but the ridiculous cliche.
