20 Miles From Home

I’m 20 miles from home
in another town and
I’m eating a footlong sub
thinking about
what I’m going to do
with the rest of my life
maybe not
the rest of my life
just the next couple of hours
but that’s more than enough time to
fuck everything up
that’s plenty of time for me to
make another bad decision
I should just stay here
for a little while longer and
go get me another refill
I’ll get me one of those
big chocolate chip cookies
I saw earlier
next to the register
I’ll try to see if I can
get the girl behind the counter’s
phone number
I know she’s kind of young
but she looks like
she’s really bored and
just waiting for someone to
give her something to do
