Stuck Up

“Oh, I’m so sorry.

I didn’t see you there.

Did you want that next breath

I took?

Here, let me put it back

so you can have it.

Not that you depend on me

for anything or ever will

or ever want to,

but it’s the least I can do

and as for me not seeing

you, I apologize for

that as well, for who

could ever overlook

someone like you

for any reason

whatsoever, not that anyone

could ever be someone

like you for any

reason whatsoever and

I apologize for repeating

my apology and

taking so much of

your valuable time,

but I’m so sorry

I got in your way

or made you

go to any trouble

to ignore me,

not that you go to

any trouble for

any reason whatsoever

to ignore anyone,

you do it so

beautifully.”
