Lonely Wants

.

what lonely wants is
to be held
to be heard
to be left alone
to finish being lonely

.

on the other hand

what lonely wants is the wheel
in one hand
and the stickshift
in one hand
and a road that’s open and a spirit strong
enough to travel through the
potentialities and possibilities
without being sideswiped
or broken down on the shoulder
watching the rest of the world go by

.

lonely wants a cookie
a guilt-free cookie 
a tide-me-over to make it 
to the next stop

.

what lonely wants
is what the heart wants
and what Emily said the heart wants is
well
what it wants

.

lonely wants and wants and wants
and wants and wants and wants
and wants and wants and wants
what lonely wants

.
