Theodore

before i fixed my hair and wore a winter hat
before i wore used medium-fit clothes
before i wore the coat

“have a good time”

a poem titled “theodore”

today i shopped for records
a woman working brought a box of rarities
said something to the effect of
“the seller could be talked down”
i noticed she was smoking
i lit one too
“so nice to smoke and shop” i thought
as i approached the ashtray
i spotted her lipstick and teethmarks
left on the butt of her sniped out marlboro light

she said to the seller
something to the effect of
“tell him i left with another man
younger than him”
before seeing a young man accompany her
i wondered if that younger man could’ve been me

“30 bucks”
the seller said
i got what i could for 10
“i’ll be back” i thought

i then went home to witness the women of the golden globes
