We used to pretend to be British
through the drive thru speaker
deadpanning, ‘she went on break’
with the bag of fries

jump kicking the door outside open
threw away my wallet by accident- fat with two week’s earnings
scarred my hand
whiling away the hours

ten years later you called
and i didn’t recognize your voice
you took it as a sign

we didn’t meet up again
til two years passed
neither of us mentioned
that phone conversation


One thought on “British
