    & carried you through that threshold

    to my other life. & see, it's the same fucking life.

yup, pretty much.

I like the way he uses Sharpied as a verb, as in

    She Sharpied insults

    on the sock I forgot & mailed it back."

We don't have Smashburger here, but I looked it up and, indeed, it was closing everywhere -- but that's not exactly what the poem is about.
