Breakup


An alphabet

flew past

yesterday

words

unspoken

until the

aftermath

apologies

and

absolution

ensnared

in traps

why do

we then

and only

then

become

conscious

of

four

feet

when

do we

then

and

only

then

understand

that to

survive

we

must

lose something

we’ve

been

accustomed

to

having.
