sorry i missed your party

sorry i missed your party
by shannon mcgarvey
When the pizza guy came
his hair looked like old Malcolm X
and the dogs almost took his leg off
before he could open the oven bag
and hand over the goods
After he left
I convinced myself
that he was still outside
peering in my window
watching me cuddle with the pizza
and filming me while I lick my fingers
wipe grease on my shirt
and guzzle a liter of Pepsi
