The call came

the way most of them do.

The day before,

after weeks of planning

and the event

scheduled for all day

with friends invited.

 

“Can’t make it.” she said,

“sorry.

It’s money,

I just had

an unexpected expense.’

“I understood,” I said

and it was true.

 

Then,

I thought about it.

Story didn’t add up,

started seeing holes

and once that starts

there’s no going back.

 

This is a person

who made shit happen

when it was necessary.

Thousands overnight

and didn’t they have excess

at the moment?

How much

are we talking about?

 

She just got a better offer

then a day with me.

I really got it then

and it pissed me off, at first

then just disappointed me

the second

everything became clear.
