Never a Louse

i worked in the stacks all day
surrounded by dirty words
i cleaned them ‘til i could read them
and then i was on my way to your fridge
drank my beer in the middle of the day
with a holy fear, and then felt guilty about it

i’d drive home past midnight to my parents’ house
shoot a text to let you know
that i was safe, i had fun, you were never a louse
now that summer’s been gone for two years
you’ve been out of my sight half that time
i still wish i could steer straight

now three different people have taken over
but every time i drive by
the picture just keeps getting older and older
because i see my memories
because i see where you loved me
to pieces
