– what will nick say –

Two weeks in, and I’m still

crashing in Nick’s bedroom.

Strong, but then, the real world

slaps me and kicks me too.

He’s so damn gracious (with his leeway),

but help ain’t spacious (so I can’t stay)

When I return soon (from a hard day),

no room to move to – what will Nick

say?

Two weeks in, and I’m just

cruising on flaky funds.

Strong, but then, my stomach

sends me on a food run.

He tries to aid me (advise all day),

yet can’t persuade me (try as he may).

When I return soon (still friends I pray),

no job to go to – what will Nick

say?

~

Will he… show his doubt, and

will he… throw me out, and

will he… reprimand, and 

never… help again, or

will he… be asleep, and

wait ’til… morning’s peak, or

will he… show mercy; will

he give me one… more… week?
