Loneliness Is Other People

We used to go financing
                nearly every Friday night
and I’d get to hear
                everything about you
and sometimes you would let me
                                touch

But turns out there
                wasn’t ever a you and I

                                only an us

So now I go financing
                every Friday night
                                with us:

                                                me, myself and I

But turns out that
                                there is no I

                except through you:

                                there is an us
                                                in trust

This is a sad state of affairs Bill.

Both funny and sad, maybe...I love the ending: tr(us)t.
