OLD MAN WALKING

I saw a shirtless old man taking himself for a walk at night
I’m scared that one day I’ll be shirtless
And the wind will rip through me
I’m scared that no one will be able to walk me
But myself

I’m just a lonely guy
Who stares at shirtless old men walking down hollow streets wearing determination cologne
I drive around a lot and stare at night because I’m sad
I don’t purposefully hit animals with my car

TOOTSIE POP

A tootsie pop is a poor gift to give to your friend
It says “I care almost nothing about you”
“Also there is a distinct possibility that I found this in the back of a drawer and decided to give it to you totally disregarding its age, much like I totally disregard our friendship”

If you’re into destroying friendships a tootsie pop is a great gift to give
It says “Rather than doing nothing and just letting our friendship fade away I’ve decided to make a definitive statement. You know what this means”
It’s over

And in the end, when the day comes where we begin reevaluate our lives
we realize that the whole point of childhood is to foster an aversion to tootsie pops in order to protect us later in life against future disappointments
