A man walks into the store and buys a pack of smokes.
You see him leave and get into his car. Drives home and smokes one.
You’ll never see the man ever again. That’s how it goes.
But the next day you realize;
He was a man that once had a cat.
He had a theory about the universe,
and a tear that sat like an effigy
in the cubicle of his sad brown eye.
