Stay Hungry

from by Tomber Lever



My husband is a peach, it turns out I've always been a leech. From the pit to the thickest of skins. Confession to reflections. Well practice makes perfect. I'll tell him someday. Today's the day.

The cat that stole your tongue, its not you its not me. Romance has had its run, it's for you its not for me. I thought I was the only one.

I've never been so sorry, but I've never been so relieved.

I enjoyed the shade of your tree. Oh those leaves. But not the roots of manogomy. Rigid, rigid, rigid loyalty. I'm sorry captian, but I just can't do it. Your gonna have to go down with your own ship. I got my life vest packed.

Out of the woods for good. No kin and new set of fins. Go swim to the deep end, and pyrotech all my belongs and bury the rest of the money.

Hold the phone I'm broke, I don't mind living in the ghetto. Can't pay the bills no more, I've been living in a shadow. Let's get uncomfortable, yah won't mind living in the ghetto.

I told him this day.
