№ 75: Lost Love



3


what becomes of you

or i
if neither will surrender,
throw down arms
and time-worn trifles,
give humility
a fighting chance?

put pride away
in some dark closet,
— his services
no longer required —
lock the door
and toss the key

it’s not his fault
just his nature;
a timeout would do him well

toss the key,
my dear…
as far as you possibly can

i’ll wait,

as always, i’ll wait

i tossed mine
long, long ago
