in a corner

sometimes
after
a month of
coming home
to my room
night after night
i forget that i’ve seen
stars over arkansas
and girls laughing
with their stomachs flat on
the bar,
that
i’ve seen the Rockies
approach and leave in mirrors
and
i’ve seen
smoke curl
like galaxies
in a diner
between two people
with nowhere to go
and nothing to talk about

i feel like i’ve painted myself
into a corner
but
at night,
drunk,
and in the right light,
i like the painting
