The Other Way - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

Over your shoulders fell
Sunlight
As you f—cked me over a thousand times,
Called me while your sisters
Were in the car:
Said you couldn't apologize:
I rode my bicycle and I rode my bicycle and
I rode my bicycle until I
Reached the other side of the sea
And still you did not
Apologize: when you found out I had
Finally capsized and got a wife,
You literally moved north of Disney World:
You moved into the ripe vestments of
Those orchards of
Ocala and Palmetto—but you still owe me
$270 for paying to speeding ticket
As you sped down one day,
Fleeing your husband to come see me,
But more likely he was in
The car with you,
Kissing your mouth, trying to send his
Daydreams between all that we had said
While the hot air balloons escaped
To the graveyards above the atmospheres
And the a$$hole gods looked the other way.
