If there's nothing missing in my life, then why do these tears come at night?


If I ever make it to the end,
I’ll toss a penny over & make a wish.
I don’t believe in that, but maybe I will then.

All my best plans wrap up: “What then?”
There’s something sad in every happy end-
ing. A death wish is a normal wish

for the girl who’s done everything. I wish
I could fill the blanks of every if-then
scenario w/ surprise. But life, friends,

upends all wishes & dies--see you then.
