Inward wrestling, interlude

 The car door remained ajar as I thought it over. She was in my head.  My heart was pierced. I was wrestling inward.

I stared at the house, then at my steering wheel. I made up my mind. The car door shut. The key turned the ignition and the engine came to life. 

I cannot ask you out, I thought, because I know you’ll say no. History says you’ll say no.

–from “Lament of the Paper Towel Man,”  available on cassette tape and CD, Sappy Love Inc, 1988.
