Last night I had a dream. That all men were faggots and all the women dykes.
No? Okay fine. But I did have a dream. Yesterday my sister, who actually does exist, saw my ex-girl and her new/old boyfriend together. Yes, the ex you know, Boaz. And that pissed me off. This is a little one horse town. There ain’t nothing back here worth seeing. Just leave me alone so I can leave you alone. Thoughts can be so unjustly bitter and wrong.
This dream though. I ran into the boy, well, young man and he’s sitting there and I walked up to him. He starts laughing but I say “listen, hold the laughter till I walk away because I just wanted to say that I’m happy for you. You always loved that girl. I never did. Not like that. After all the shit she put you through you still loved her after all those years. She probably told you a lot of bullshit about me, I know she did because she told me a lot of bullshit about you. She played us both like fiddles. I knew you a lot longer than I ever knew her. Keep a eye on her and don’t let her go. The first person who gives her more attention than you… I never felt good about what I did to you way back when. That was fucked up and I’m sorry. Everybody warned me but I bet nobody warned you. I was with her longer than you were now, we lived together, but I hope you hold onto her for good now. If that’s what you want. All I’m saying is I’m sorry and because you love this girl, watch her like a hawk or she’ll do you over again. You don’t deserve that shit. So I’m giving you the warning somebody should have given you back then.” And I put out my hand. He didn’t shake it though. People never believe the things they should.
