I met myself

I met myself by the creek today. I was

carrying a half-empty bottle of stout.

And I was full of excuses. I lived not far

away but I was kind of vague about

my job and why I had moved there.

My dog was left to wander

close to the water. I wanted to find

common ground about the good old

days and amble on. Bored … I soon

left myself behind.
