Six Digits

SIX DIGITS

The girl that you danced with
the night before
the girl you made out with
in the corner booth at the diner
the girl who gave you a number with six digits
after talking about her ex-boyfriend
and all the drugs he used to do
and did you know where to score some Q?

That girl is not right for you.
That girl from last night
that occupied your restless dreams
and your wired visions in wakefulness
is all wrong
but all right,
if you know what I mean
– and I’m pretty sure you do.

A sensible man
would not try to find her.
A sensible man
would erase her from his hard drive.
A sensible man
would not try out all final ten digits
of her number
in the hopes of uncovering which was hers
before realizing
that it could have been the first number she neglected
or the fifth
and what about the area code anyway and –
the girl is not right for you.

She’s just not right
and if you were in your right mind,
you’d see that.
So maybe you’ll be in your right mind later.
