Last Call


For years
I used to hear
last call, 
before I stopped
looking for someone 
just like you, 
listening
to the same old songs,
drinking your drink 
as well as mine
when they said
it was closing time.
I'd call for a cab
to take us home,
where I heard 
your voice 
from down the hall,
even though
I knew all along,
it wasn't you, 
at all.
