My Little Town

i
saw you in the mexican restaurant today
i wanted to say hi
but i
just couldn’t bring myself to follow you
or to call your name across the way

i noticed you’ve grown to look like a lady
who many lads would be pleased to get familiar with

but i imagine you’ve grown in so many more ways
i wish i could show you how i’ve matured
i could pay you the appreciation and respect i owe you from so long ago

i wanted to ask you for your number
i’d try the old one if i could remember it

“395-something”
“maybe 95, 60 or 90-something”
“maybe 1-2-3”

i noticed you’ve acquired some tattoos on your legs and feet
i remembered the friendship you once provided me
i can see now i really should have kept that close

i imagine you’re a great girlfriend to someone these days
i still remember your smile but i did not see it this day

if i could go back in time for a second attempt to predict the future
you’d be the one i put my savings on

i’ve now seen how you were then and since treated
and who it’s made you today

i wish we could keep in touch
but i wrote this to thank you
and to just say
hi

Artist's Description

i spotted an old friend today from across a restaurant, someone i’d like to stay in touch with. i didn’t have the opportunity to speak to her, but i was reminded how strong our friendship once felt, years ago. i’d like to know the young woman she’s come to be and for her to know the young man i’ve become. many would agree that i’m much more polite and understanding in my more recent years, and i wish she could experience that. she looked really lovely, too.

hours later i’d brought out the creature, who then decided to write this in pen.
