The Lonely Sock

October 10, 2008
By Eddy Soares, Seekonk, MA

where is my twin
maybe lost in the wash
maybe under the bed lost in dust
maybe on the floor kicked off in lust
maybe near the pool on the nasty deck
maybe the dog grabbed it on one of his treks

Has he changed his color?
Does he want to get away?
Was I a bad partner that day?
Did he get thrown out?
Did he get ripped?
what is wrong with me?
Did he get stuck in that tree?
Where is my twin?

So lonely at this point.
left alone in this joint.
the draw full of couples.
I get jealous of them all.
I shouldn't have left the mall.
Now I'm all alone.
At least I'm still at home.
