TRICK AND TREAT
(10/23/14)


I
found out
a week
after the
fact

she had married
the guy
for whom
she left me

I finally
feel free

what a waste
it would've
seemed
if I had divorced
her
for an unfulfilled
infidelity

I don't
believe
in closure

things
and people
just end

but I do
feel a greater
sense of relief
now that she's
officially tied
to another

her forth
marriage
and I know
not
her last

but it should
last long
enough
so that I
can move on
to my next
destination
without distraction

without
having to check
for a ghost
each time
that I enter
a darkened
room
