joseph lisowski

it could’ve been yesterday
joseph lisowski

Or the day before,
thirty years ago
when you tap, tap, tapped
the crook of your elbow,
then tightened the rubber rope.

I can still taste
the thrill under your lip,
your teeth shining bright.
And I remember you
always saying coke
is what you do
but heroin will do
if you gotta make do.

I was yesterday.
And I miss you.
