Subway sandwich

She was different around him 

Maybe she was afraid too 

Maybe just afraid of losing her paycheck 

I don’t know 

But I don’t think she was fooled 

Just not brave 

He screamed he wasn’t angry 

He shook and screamed 

Oh no, he wasn’t angry

I was the crazy one 

I talked to her alone 

And his text demanded a subway sandwich

“Don’t you dare buy him a sandwich” 

He wasn’t around and she was suddenly brave. 

“Don’t you dare.”

I texted back. 

“What do you want on your sandwich?”
