Sorry I Stepped on Your Painting

Sorry I Stepped on Your Painting
by Kevin Ridgeway

It was in the doorway for God’s sake
I was coming in for a drink
You should have been more careful

We exchanged many bitter words
And my relations with your roommate were over
But you shouldn’t have been working on that

Painting in the doorway
I know I crushed the corner
With my thong sandals

I’m sorry I made such a to-do about it
I was down at the local watering hole
Getting drenched in jerk juice

But to be perfectly honest with you
My stepping on your painting
Really gave it a surrealistic edge
