Sinking In

Sinking In

you don’t think I can get myself out of this
the guy cradles his phone against his ear
eyes dart around gaze settles tabletop
you don’t think
breaks off the sentence
well how about Saturday or Sunday
spells out his name
sips his coffee
gazing at the table’s scarred surface
not seeing it
because he does not think he can get himself out of this
