Just Another Sad, Sad Evening

M.A. Vizsolyi

You’ve come back again
looking for the weeping girl
with braids
you most likely 
have a better phrase
or feel more prepared to deal with sorrow
she’s still gone
i put her in a bar
she is older and thinner
& more beautiful
& is a stripper
i can take you to see her
if you’d like
but i don’t think
she’ll want to speak with you
she’s grown colder
& cries less
but we can watch her dance
i can even arrange for something
more private
if that’s the kind of thing you’d be interested in
