Metaphor Shortages

 Metaphor Shortages

 

can’t wear those pants no more

i don’t dance for anyone

 

can’t drink more than soda

no more chili dog runs

 

don’t deal with Frank at all

haven’t called cousins in ages

 

they supported that fraud

i cancelled the engagement

 

one door opens another closes

dream dies another’s born

 

riding these waves like a leaf

floating in a flash flood

 

still think about you daily

still read for full-on days

 

ruminating possibilities

with the impatience of age

 

wanna be more compassionate

gonna get out of debt

 

be playing you the piano

but haven’t learned it yet
