Listen to Phil Collins After a Fight by Melanie Browne

You should listen to Phil
Collins after a fight.
it’s like the sorbet
they give you
between courses
at a fancy dinner,
Of course you will
start with
“I don’t care anymore,”
but then you will
slip into ‘easy lover’
and ‘one more
night’ and
“In too deep”
you should listen
to Phil Collins in
the car after
a fight
with maybe
one illicit
cigarette
windows
down and a
semi -cool
breeze
until you
hear the other couples
fighting at the
red light and
have to roll
them up again
