Press Play

Our story is
a mix tape of Ed Sheeran songs I no longer listen to anymore
a night of Snow Patrol’s New York in loop
Bon Iver’s Blindsided playing when it’s raining

I am
a mess of sad folk songs that no one likes
a one-hit wonder whose song reminds him of a Billboard Top 40 artist
a sad excuse of a boyband single that will never be a hit

He is
a She & Him standard–sad words, but happy tune
a song’s refrain that I sing in my head all day
a favorite track I will never be brave enough to press play
