i automatically classify anything over $5 as expensive
… And as I turned to leave,
I caught myself in the mirror to see
I aged a year this week.
I left a note up on your bed
That said “Hey, thanks again
For everything you did.”
I woke up older carrying
Two years in the bags under my eyes.
I watched you wake up and get dressed.
You left the room.
Receded like my hairline.
