beep beep

when i am at the brink the edge of manic swells or negative spaces of depression i say to the universe

beep beep, richie

when i was too young i read it under the blankets with a flashlight through the night

i wanted to be bill sure he stuttered but he was the leader and got the girl

sort of

but i was richie in ben’s body

when richie was manic the group would call

beep beep, richie

and he would come back to earth

i’ve screamed it until my voice gave out

still i drift just out of orbit

lost in the space

between us

beep beep, richie

beep beep
