EX PARTE
(11/6/14)


the hurt
and histrionics
are over

calm
and separate
futures
have prevailed

but now
she texts

emails

about her
new life
with her new
husband

after only
a month
there seem to be
regrets

too bad

she left me
all the best
parts
of my life
to enjoy
alone

without
any of her
detractions

I am
a happy
man

she had wanted
divorce
so badly
but in the end
didn't even show
to see
the decree
being granted

I would
like
to revisit
that judge
today

show him
the paperwork

and ask him

"what
do I do about
her now?"
