I Knew I Never Liked Advertising

I put your name in the papers

and then told her to open the page.

I paid for the ink.

And now I’m like the editor,

who’s running around

trying to pick up all of yesterday’s prints,

hoping that nobody will see the mistake I made.

Hoping that you will see me panting on the sidewalk,

trying to catch my breath,

and stop to ask me why.
