Sometimes I Forget

I sometimes forget

Crazy to you means twirling in circles

Not the woman on the light rail

Or my roommate from the U

Or the week I had at work

I sometimes forget

Good night to you means sweet dreams

Not escape at The Muddy Pig

Or an evening without hurt

Or a night without obsession

I sometimes forget

Please to you means can I have it? Can I? Can I?

Not I really need this job

Or spend your life with me

Or don’t leave

I sometimes forget

You’re four

Not thirty-something

And words to me are suitcases

And words to you are paintbrushes
