A Friend is Leaving for Europe

from by Lonely Deer



A friend is leaving for Europe.
Another friend and I
bought him gifts of Canadiana,
then took him to a pizza place for a good time.

Then we went to a bar with another friend.
There was a live band that was good.
We drank beer and stood
in the corner and watched.
A girl we went to high school with
came over and talked to the travelling friend.
She introduced herself to #2 and I,
"Hi, I'm Lisa,"
then she pointed to the travelling friend and said,
"We went to school together."
No shit.

I tried to make eye contact
with a waitress there
that I like,
but it didn't happen

Travelling friend wanted to leave
so we left,
and sat
in a shittier bar
with different people.

All true.
All true.
If you can believe it.
