Why Did You Leave? - Poem by Robert Brendan

When it gets sad or phony
or I'm getting angry in
these situations
usually
I just leave
when some girl
is talking about nothing
asking questions to see
if she will ever run out of them

but she never does

I just leave.
after they have asked me
what
my problem is
my issue
lets talk about this
and get
to the down root of it
I just leave
and other times
when there one sitting
there
and you have been trying to
have a conversation
about
anything really
anything but asking those
questions
what are you drinking
how’s it going
what are you doing tonight
how’s and on
then
you hear it
I don’t read
ever
no never
I leave then too
why she asks
why do you have to go
I have something I have to do
I say
not looking at her
but she smells the lie

good for her
that means she’s not
dead yet.
