Home » Poetry » Sometimes


Let’s just assume
that every poem titled “Sometimes”
is up to no good, no snuff.
You wanna talk about a one-time feeling
and make it like it happens
like the wind on its normal course.

I know that “sometimes” equals “this time”, pal.

Just say it:
this time, this one-time
It sucks to be you right now.

And we don’t really care
that it’ll be better tomorrow-
we have sometimes.

We have some time to read
and to feel and to know
and maybe sometimes we’ll feel like you,
but only sometimes.

Sometimes when we’re sitting
with a bottle and a cup
and shit’s real bad,
we’ll crack you open.

And we might think that you’ve
got it figured out for us
but you’ve already moved the hell on.
