accidental love song


Didn't get to sleep till after 3 AM again
and now my eyes feel itchy,
but am more or less OK.

Also, my left pinkie is black and blue
because I was test riding
(just around the block)
a new bike at midnight
and I hadn't tightened the steering fully
and down I went.
I think I dislocated it
a bit.

I'm glad there's no footage of the crash,
and that no neighbors or passersby
were there to see
my indignity.

I promise you,
I looked completely
the old fool

that I am
for you.
