My Flat Tire
Sitting in my car, I will drive him home.
Sitting in my car, I have a flat tire
and I am weeping.
I call to ask him, can you help me?
I call to ask him, are you there for me?
And he comes.
I watch his back as he pumps for me
He fills my tire and allows me to come home
I sit on the sidewalk, meanwhile, destitute.
I am happy, I give him a kiss.
I am happy, I say, “I love you”,
for the first and last time.
