PROXIMATE SEPARATION
(5/11/14)


they
were over

but they
were still
not done

they
mimed
a dance
of mutual revulsion
upon shared floors
in hallways
and other
common
spaces

returning
to their respective
corners
at the soonest
opportunity

they awaited
decisions

actions

that would
finally render
their relationship
irrevocably
asunder

but
for now

they looked
away
during each
chance passing

avoiding
the eyes
that were
once
adored
