I Wrote A Good Omelet

I wrote a good omelet…and ate
a hot poem… after loving you

Buttoned my car…and drove my
coat home…in the rain…
after loving you

I goed on red…and stopped on
green…floating somewhere in between…
being here and being there…
after loving you

I rolled my bed…turned down
my hair…slightly
confused but…I don’t care…

Laid out my teeth…and gargled my
gown…then I stood
…and laid me down…
To sleep…
after loving you

The nights are the hardest…

The darkest…

I knew once…love like that…

Or I knew it too many times…

 

Nothing to hold me…

My dreams are left with nothing to desire…

This stomach crumples in resignation…

I knew once…love like that…deeper and thoughtful…

 

The hope that my phone evokes,

For a care to beep…

Just a string of letters, so little it takes…

But the love I once knew….satiated and some more…

 

But it seems to be gone now…

Sometimes digging for it on these forums and apps (gosh! I hate it!)…

Not that I am clinging to any memory of you…

It’s just that…love like that…

 

I no longer know where to look for it…
