One Hundred And Twenty

All right, just
you need to listen to me.
It’s kind of important
that you give me a few minutes
to get my point across.
You’ve been avoiding me
and I get it.
I do.
I understand how I’ve been acting lately
but if you just give me three minutes
– two –
I think I’ll be able to make a compelling case
as to why it’s worth your time
to give me two more
and two more after that
and then maybe three more
and you might see where I’m going with this.

so do you think I can get two minutes of your time?
Just two minutes
one hundred and twenty paltry seconds
to review the past eight days
and consider what went into them
and what we might be able to do
to go forward
without so much awkwardness between us.
Is this possible?
Is this conceivable?
Is this something we could work out?

One twenty?
All right.

let me apologize
for the forty thousand cherries
currently in your apartment.
I was wrong to deliver them.
you were wrong
about everything else.
Allow me to explain –
