it felt strange

walking on the sidewalk
with the others still trapped in the truck
megan wanted to take her chances
but i felt a great sense of relief

at the newsstand on the corner
there were a lot of pictures of frank but no papers
ernie was not even there
i guess he was not too worried

i went up to joe’s room
his old telephone was still there
the one that looked like a banana
i was tempted, but left everything the way i found it

in the office
i crawled across the floor
and got my pants back on
everybody acted like they didn’t notice

someday i will go back to the hotel
and this time go up the stairs very carefully
because you never know who is waiting
