Rejection Letters

Second Date

Brody’s Blacksmith Shop serves until midnight
and the dirty little taco truck (one town over)
serves tacos to all the drunks
until the drunks decide
sex is an option.

I brought him whiskey to the next event:
oral sex behind the old Lake City Theatre.
I stared at the old English letters with each
nod of my head
and I wondered:

drinking that much all the time
will kill you –
guess he thinks
he’s too good for dying, too.
