it just occurred to me
 apropos of everything
  that all of this time when
    i thought that i was just
     shitty at communication
      because you could never
       seem to understand what
        i was trying to say that it
         really wasn't me and i realized
          this in the most innocuous of
           ways as we were driving nowhere
          and nothing i said registered
         because you took the call and
        i spent the next forty five minutes
       of our midnight drive listening
      to one side of a two-sided
     conversation and when i turned
    around to take you home you
   seemed surprised and maybe
  even a little relieved but to me
 the light bulb lit over my head as if
i were a cartoon with a great idea
