Not Dressed Up
I wish I could just say
the things that stick so plainly in my head.
I want to admit it,
I want to scream it so you’d hear me.
How: sometimes I’m just wallowing
and listening to music that hits a chord,
and how “you’ve just got to hear this song”
or, “I’m stumbling around drunk and I want to hear your voice”
is mumbling at the tip of my lips
but I just can’t bring myself to say it.
But would you even listen?
