When You Visit Columbus

on your way from Los Angeles
to New York, I’ll tell you
there’s nothing to do here but drink

can you see our friendship
gripping skeleton bottles?

before we stumbled into every hazy bubble
of unfilled expectations

we called L.A. city by its name

then other cities called our names
like somewhere in this world
wanted us
