Type A

By Michael Thomas Ellis

No, not personality, blood type. They say it makes you more susceptible.

She’s sitting here next to me. Crying again. They just told her it won’t be long now.

I want to tell her I’m sorry. For forcing her to always go out to eat. For all those trips to see the grandkids. For having friends and family from out of state come visit us. For that campaign rally I went to, where I went toe to toe with that reporter.

I want to say I’m sorry.

But you can’t say anything when you’re on a vent.
